Very Basic Problem

Hello
I would like to compile the "Hello World" thing but I cannot access the jdk from a command prompt.
I can open the files in Windows though.
When I make a "dir" at a C: prompt I can see the directory j2sdk1.4.0_01 in the list of directories.
However when I type CD j2sdk1.4.0_01. I have an error message ("directory name is incorrect" or something like that. It's a Japanese Windows 2000 system so I translated the error message in English)
Could someone help me? Thanks :roll:

I have no problems on Windows 2000 doing what you have described. Are you sure you are using zeros and not letter 'O's?
Try cd j2sdk* that should also work.
As an alternative consider using the
free BlueJ environment.

Thank you very much for your help.
I modified the name of the directory to "j2sdk" and now it works.
