Hi everybody,

Thank u John, Thorsten, Igor.
I will try to explain what I did:

I am starting cygwin by clicking on its icon.
senenv HOME is "/home/xxxx" (xxxxx is my name account
in windows xp).
I copied the file "/etc/skel.bashrc" into my HOME, and
added the line: 
export PATH=/home/T-COFFEE/bin:`printenv PATH`
This didn't change nothing. I had to add this command
from the command line to get a the new path

I guess I missed something ...
