Question Setting Paths for Java

I'm new to linux and am running Mandrake 9.0.

I just installed java 1.4.1 into /usr/local/j2sdk1.4.1_02 and I want to set the path as root so that all users have access to the javac command without having to use the full path to the compiler. Can someone tell me how to do this?

It may be easier to create a link to javac from something that is already in all users path like /usr/bin:

ln -sf /usr/local/j2sdk1.4.1_02/bin/javac /usr/bin/javac
