GZip is installed, but how do I make gzip work from the shell command line??

I have GZip installed and have to use /sw6/samba/usr/local/bin/gzip to unzip files. But how to I make it so that I can just type gzip on the command line and it works? I remember hearing something about environment variables? As of now, when I just type gzip from the shell command, it says "ksh: gzip: not found". Pls help.. Thanks in advance for all the help.

In your .profile, add

export PATH=$PATH:/sw6/samba/usr/local/bin
