several questions

Hi all

i have some (probably stupid) questions:

1) -how can i change the path variable permanently?
-what's the command to check the path variable?

2) i'm using kde on a mandrake linux 9.1 (double boot sys. with win
XP), after deleting a desktop link to the win-partition the Konqueror-links
to my home directory /home/$usrname/ on the
desktop and in the task bar don't work any more...

You can see a short blinking on the task bar, then it disappears...
and i have to start konqueror using the shell.

Any ideas? Thanks.

For example , to add /home/mikki/progs to your PATH


export PATH

To check your current PATH

echo $PATH
