I know that this is possible, but every attempt that I have made to get jython to read the jar file is unsucessful.

This is on win2000 using jython-2.1

I have a jar file which is called help.jar

I have attempted setting the CLASSPATH either in a batch file and running from either this directory or where
jython is installed does not work (error indicated below)
        > set CLASSPATH=c:/pathToJarFiles

I have attemped setting the CLASSPATH as a environment variable in the control panel system section.
Again I have tried to run jython from either this directory or where jython was installed

I have attempted to copy the associated jar file to the directory where jython is installed

I have attempted adding the add_extdir to point to the path that I want to use (pathToJarFiles)

Jython 2.1 on java1.3.1_04 (JIT: null)
Type "copyright", "credits", or "licence" for more information.
>>> import help
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "(console)", line 1 in ?
ImportError: no module named help

I know that I am missing something obvious but it eludes me what it is.
