On UNIX/LINUX type echo $CLASSPATH at the command line and it will print out all the files and directories that are configured to be included.
To edit the CLASSPATH you will have to edit a profile - but where to do it and if you have permission will depend on your setup.

On Windows open the autoexec.bat file and you will see lines like this:
set CLASSPATH=c:\dirname\subdirname;C:\anotherdir\anothersubdir;
other lines below the first one might set new values and then include the previous definition like this:
Hope that helps,
