Hello
What would happen if setting classpath as
C:\JDK1.3\bin;;C:\userFolder
Or what is the difference between
C:\JDK1.3\bin;;C:\userFolder
and
C:\JDK1.3\bin;C:\userFolder
plz let me know ...

I'd guess not a lot of difference.
One thing I will mention, though, is that setting a classpath entry to C:\JDK1.3\bin is not a good idea. "bin" is where the executables (java, javac etc.) are located, not where any usable classes can be found.

I'm wondering if you mean
C:\JDK1.3\bin;.;C:\userFolder
rather than
C:\JDK1.3\bin;;C:\userFolder

But even this probably won't make any difference.
