At the command line, you separate them with a delimiter. Semicolon on Windiows; colon on other OS.

You need to explore your C: drive. Try C->Program Files->Java->jdk1.6.0_something->bin, and you shoudl find about 30 programs including javac.exe, java.exe, appletviewer.exe, etc. Then you write down all the names of the folders starting with C and ending with bin, something like
C:\Program Files\java\jdk1.6.0_12\bin

And that is the path element you need.
I agree. Here's the link:
