Default Custom Shaders in Mental Ray for Maya 5??

Anyone know how to get the Mental ray shaders (Transmat, Parti_Volume, Dielectric... etc....) to show up in the hypershade in Maya 5?? I've tried the DOS command


which worked in Maya 4.5, but that wont work either.
Any Ideas?

It wont work with DOS.
Find your Maya.env file
Open it with notepad
Add the following line :
Save the file.
