There are instructions on the Install page for how you set those 
environmental variables[1][2][3], at least within a command shell.

If you want to set them up to be available across all command shells, 
then that will depend on your operating system. You don't tell us which 
operating system you are using, so it is difficult to know how to direct 
you.You can look at Windows XP instructions[4] which largely apply to 
Vista and Windows 7 as well[5], or if you are on a Macintosh you can 
look at instructions for OS X using tcsh[6] or bash[7].

ANT?  Just to get you an idea where my difficulties started, I couldn't set the environmental
variables JAVA_HOME and ANT_HOME as required in the "Installing ANT" section of the manual.
Hopefully, someone is able and willing to sit for a good while and write a detailed procedure
to get this done.
