Trouble compiling java files
I'm trying to create an IRC bot using java SE and have run into a problem
I was given this direction on a site:
To compile our example IRC Bot, you will need to open a command prompt and navigate to the directory containing the code. Assuming you have Java correctly set up, you can then compile the Bot by issuing the following command: -
javac -classpath pircbot.jar;. *.java
It told me that "*.java" would compile my .txt (txt files titled .java) files into .class files.
This is my first time using a command prompt OR Java, and this is probably a very basic problem.

^^ these are the directions I am following.... I really just want to move on, help?
PircBot Video Tutorial on Vimeo
^^ about 12 mins into THIS video tutorial is where I got stuck, I have followed the directions diligently, and I am running windows 7.
my control panel looks EXACTLY like this guy's until i get the error message after typing the above command.
The Command Prompt says: javac: file not found: *.java
I thought *.java was an action........
