Corrupt PATH Settings

The other day I tried running tracert from the command prompt ("C:\").  It wouldn't work.  Neither would ping, telnet, etc.  I could only access them if I moved to the c:\winnt\system32 directory where these programs reside.  I checked the path setting, and %systemroot%\system32 is the first entry.  I've only installed Matlab and AutoCad 2000 since the last time I've used tracert.

How do I view/edit the default path settings in win2k?

Thanks.

the path " %systemroot%\system32" is default in win2k OS.
If you cannot run commands which under this folder at
c:\,maybe you should check the path length at system properties. Becuase the defualt setting is 256 bytes to
store.
