How can I add cygwin/bin to the search path in Windows XP?

I installed Cygwin on my Windows XP machine. How can I add c:\cygwin\bin to the %PATH% in such a way that it persists?

"Right click on my computer and select properties. In the Advanced tab, there is a button called Environment Variables. The PATH variable is in there, just add a semicolon and then the cygwin path to the end of the existing value, so it looks like this:

C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS\;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem;...;c:\cygwin\bin"
