problem with the PATH (help)

Hello , pls help me 'cause it's "sick and tired" .
So i'm trying to modify my PATH to include the "/opt/SUNWappserver" but the - setenv - doesn't quite cut it . My solution was to modify the bash.bashrc.local to include the new PATH but that was then now i want something new . I'm using the SuSE 9.0 Profesional and as you can see am new to Linux .

So i had to change to csh and then setenv the PATH but after restart the PATH was rebuild to the old one .

Help is always apreciated .

In bash use export instead of setenv. Example:
export PATH=$PATH:/opt/SUNWappserver
That's also the command to add to .bashrc (i your home dir) or /etc/rc.d/rc.local (to make the change global).
