Windows has environment variables. For a single DOS session you can use
the SET command:

SET RUBYLIB=...

How you set them permanently depends on which version you're running. If
you're running XP or NT, go to Control Panel->System and hunt around. In
XP I think it's under an Advanced button. Or go to Help and enter
"Environment".
