Making Commands for an Applikation

Hello everyone again,

Could some of you help me to make a command for an Application. What i am trying to do is to replace the boring

:> cd /usr/local/netscape
:> ./netscape

with a command to start netscape which i could run from whatever directory. I suppose i should change the $PATH and make an alias, but i dont know how

Here i am on RedHat 9.0 KDE

Thanks in advance

between this and this you should easily learn how to add to your PATH for you can just type netscape ...
