[FWTools] FWTools_setting path, env. variables

i can't wrap my head around this..from the FWTools ReadMe.txt :

 "You can also use the various commands from other win32 command shells as
long as you run the setfw.bat file in the FWTools directly first to setup
the PATH and various other environment variables."

does this mean i can call e.g. gdalinfo.exe from any path i.e. C:\windows or
just C:\ from my Windows Command Window? can someone kindly point out where
I'm going wrong (besides my lack of experience w/ this problem).

do i add something to the environmental variables PATH within Windows? if
i'm using FWTools2.2.6 do I need to edit the setfw.bat at all before running
it? do i need to edit my autoexec.nt or autoexec.bat?

thanks for the guidance + patience *joe
