I just compiled Kommander, and right after the install it said:

*************** Important *************************

 Add /usr/bin to your PATH and
 add /usr to your KDEDIRS!

How would I go about doing that?  I'm fairly new to linux.

on the fly:        PATH=/usr/bin:$PATH

First see if these settings are already present:

echo $PATH
echo $KDEDIRS

if they're not set (visible), then you might add the commands I mentioned earlier to your .profile
(for you alone) or to /etc/.profile  (for every user).
There's more places where you can set them but these are basic.

OK, this was basic, so as soon as possible, get yourself a simple book about it.
Good luck!
