more man page trouble

Forums: 

Linux nEWb,
working my way through the man pages still... confused one in this statement? : export PATH="$PATH:/opt/gnome/bin" I thought I could do export PATH="$PATH=/opt/gnome/bin"???.... Also, this is temp? when I reboot it's gone? right? If I'm learning anything I'd have to put it in ./bashrc or ./bash_profile right?
