Hi ALf,
Welcome to JavaRanch!
You need to add C:\J2sdk1.4.2_01\bin to your PATH environment variable. The proper way to do this varies by system, but for more modern Windows versions, it just involves visiting the "System" control panel. Open applications won't see the new environment variables until they're restarted, which includes DOS console windows.

Please e-mail me at tarupido@excite.com

Nope, we don't do that 'round these parts, but if you signed up for the Ranch with an email address, you could be notified by email that I've posted this.
