Linux java setup

I am struggling to get my java set up to write, compile and run some java programs, and honestly being a linux newbie the docs for such are somewhat confusing..

I am trying to break this down as simple as possible.

-I am logged into Linux as root.
-then download the j2sdk1.4.2_06 in the /USR/ dir
-I did chmod +x j2sdk1.4.2_06...
-then./j2sdk1.4.2_06...
it installed successfully.
now I have a new dir called /usr/j2sdk1.4.2_06
but setting up the path classpath is different.
I would like two things:

I would like to create a directory called javasrc to hold all my java source code
but I do not want to develop in with root account, I want any user to be able to use the javasrc directory and be able to compile and run the programs..

what exactly do I edit. someone said I need to edit a file in /ETC/PROFILE

I want to try this..but I dont think it is correct


also, will this also allow my mozilla browser to recognize jave?

thank you

Try this from the FAQ:
Hot to Set the Classpath


the mkdir command creates a directory.
