Huh?  Use the `System' icon in the control panel.  On the last tab,
`Advanced', there should be a button for setting environment variables.

No reboot should be necessary, but processes that are currently running
do not get updated so you will have to restart them.

Alternatively, just call SET from a shell window and it will persist until
you close the window.

Incidentally, I put a personal `collects' directory in my home directory
and set the collects path in my mzscheme.rc  When I want to use MzC,
I just SET the PLTCOLLECTS variable from an Emacs shell  window.
