<pre>Question 1: If I have JDK 1.3 installed, do I still need JRE in C:\program files\Javasoft?</pre> I think you could get by without the JRE. Why do you ask? Are you that short on disk space?
<pre>Question 2: In which ext directory should I drop my custom jar files?</pre> They normally go in the ext subdir that belongs to C:\program files\Javasoft but you could put them anywhere as long as you incorporate them into your classpath.

When I install JDK 1.3, it seems another JRE in C:\program files\ was also installed. This makes me think both JDK and JRE are needed. When use JDK 1.3, we don�t have to set CLASSPATH at all. (although we need to set path=c:\jdk1.3\bin). Then which ext directory (%JavaHome%/jre/lib/ext or ../Javasoft/jre/lib/ext ?) the Java program will search for custom jar files?
