This is correct. This step is mentioned in the Getting Started Guide
in "Setting up your environment", as step 3, although it relies on
DERBY_HOME being properly set.

Perhaps an improvement would be to instruct the user to execute
'$DERBY_HOME/bin/sysinfo,' or even just 'ls $DERBY_HOME/bin' ('dir
%DERBY_HOME%' on Windows) and confirming that it points to the
location of the scripts before adding $DERBY_HOME/bin to the path, in
order to make sure that DERBY_HOME has been set correctly.
