Sorry that this is such a basic question, but I cannot get ant to run. 

I am following the J2EE tutorial which says the following: 
1.      In a terminal window, go to the j2eetutorial/examples/src directory.

2.      Type the following command: 

	        ant converter 

Which I did, but am continually get the following message when trying to run

'ant' is not recognized as an internal or external command, 
operable program or batch file. 

I have set my classpath to include c:\ant\bin  (ant being where I installed
I have tried with just c:\ant  c:\ant\bin,   and also added the
c:\ant\lib\ant.jar, c:\ant\lib\jaxp.jar & c:\ant\lib\parser.jar

Please help !
