Question Java Installation on Mandrake


Hi all !

I got a problem with installing java on my Mandrake (9.1) Linux.
I downloaded the sdk 1.4 as a .bin file from java.sun.com.

Then i managed (yes, im a complete new to linux ;-) ) to execute the
install script.
After a little search i found the java installation in my /user/java/j2[...]/bin path.

The first problem i have, is that when i type simply "java" in my terminal nothing happens. I have to change to my java installation path and type "./java" or "./javac" to get the interpreter/compiler to work.

As i have read in some other threads, i tried to put my installation path to my environment variable with export PATH=/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.1_02/bin/:$PATH

When i type in a "echo $PATH" the new directory is listed, but after a system restart it's gone again.
I also tried to enter "source ~/.bashrc" after the export command, but that gives me the following error :
bash: TMOUT: readonly variable
(tried the command both as normal user and root)


So many questions here ;-) I would be glad if you can help me with one or more of my questions.
As im a newb. to linux - Some detailed Information about the "backgrounds" or some link to a good tutorial would help me as well :-)

The point of sourcing bashrc is that you put that line in there:
PATH=/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.1_02/bin/:$PATH

Save and exit. THEN source the file:
source .bashrc

Cool

hmm, i again get this message :
[hotkey@hotkey hotkey]$ source ~/.bashrc
bash: TMOUT: readonly variable

I've put the line in my bashrc like the following :
# User specific aliases and functions
PATH=/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.1_02/bin/:$PATH

Is this right? And what exactly does the "source" function ?
