editing autoexec.bat

Hello!
I´m working in a company where we sell our e- products.For one our product we have a problem ( it´s about e-payment ).In OS Windows 98 we must offten change ( edit ) autoexec.bat because we need to change the path inside it.
Could someone tell me something about autoexec.bat and the path generally, or recommend me some internet site?

Many thanks!!!!!!!

an easy way to edit it is to use msconfig

go to start->run and type

msconfig and select the autoexec.bat tab

or do you want to edit it through like a script?

The path is used by windows when trying to find files
not specified by giving the full path name.

Are you changing path back and forth, or are you changing
it by adding new search directories ?

If the all the directories are known, you should be able
to put them all in the path. You may have to use several path statements, carrying forward the current path using
%PATH%. There used to be a 128 char limitation, but that was removed in win95. There are some minor side effects
when you exceed 256 characters.

For example

path %PATH%;c:\aaa;c:\bbb\ccc
path %PATH%;c:\ddd\eee

etc.
Hope this helps :-)
