[erlang-questions] How to install a specific version of erlang and uninstall a previously installed version on linux

I tried installing erlang from the packages link but it didn't worked for me somehow,then I tried installing it from source but instead of installing 6.1 Erlang/OTP 17.1 it installed erts 5.8.5 instead of 6.1.
Then I decided to install it using kerl from the link

but after the command : chmod a+x kerl
it is written that : drop it in your $PATH
I am not able to understand what path is it talking about. Do we also have a root path like windows, in linux also?
Can you please guide a little?
