Configuring packages and class paths

Im pretty new to java but I am currently trying to set up a lib directory under my servlet directory to house utility classes. I also have all my servlets in individual directories under the servlet directory. I have been having many problems getting the servlet to execute when I reference the classes in my lib directory. I believe the problem is my classpath configuration because I am able to get the servlet to run when both classes are in the same directory. I am currently running Netscape iplanet for a web server. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

How are you setting your CLASSPATH? What's the fully qualified name of you classes, jars, whatever?
I agree. Here's the link:
