it should set things up when it is installed.

set JAVA_HOME to the directory where JDK is installed.
Add $JAVA_HOME/bin to your PATH.

make sure that you downloaded the SDK instead of JRE:
http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/download.html

"javac" is used for compiling.
"java" is used to execute the classes you have compiled.

>> but it is not compiling

Can you post the errors you get?
