problem installing junit

I did a search on junit and some ranch hand said that the XP processing etc., was the best place to post junit questions. So, here I am.
My installation directory for junit is c:\junit3.
I tried the first test and got the following error message:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: junit/textui/TestRunner ...
What could I be doing wrong?

Sounds like you don't have junit.jar in your classpath when running the tests?

But, I followed the installation instructions and copied the classpath to my system environment.
set classpath=%classpath%;INSTALL_DIR\junit3\junit.jar
P.S. - I'm using WindowsXP.

I'm guessing that should have been:
set classpath=%classpath%;c:\junit3\junit.jar
INSTALL_DIR is just a symbol indicating that you should use whatever directory you installed into.
