Oracle 10g release 2 installation problem

Hi ,
Iam trying to install Oracle 10g release 2 software but during installation its giving an error as ""The environment setting for the path on
this machine is too long. The path may not be longer than 1023 characters in
length. Please change the environment setting for the path to a value that is
less than 1023 characters in length".  I don't know in environment variables where i can increase the value.
Pls suggest me along in detail what i have to do, step by step .(with the path)

Right click on my computer and choose properties.  Then choose advanced and then environment variables.  There is a path under system variables and poosibly under user variables.  The computer combines them to make the path for the system.  You will need to remove some entries from one or both of those paths to get Oracle to install.
