Problem with copy cisco config to FTP server

Hi,
I have a Cisco router 1602 and currently in production envi.  I am trying to backup configuration file to an FTP server.  I've already finished setting up FTP server.  I am having an issue when trying to copy cisco configutation file to ftp today. I used 2 different commands to copy and having the error on both.
First command:
Router#copy running-config ftp: and press Enter
% Invalid flash device name nvram:
% valid flash devices on this platform are -flash : : : (this is the error)
Second command:
Router# copy nvram: startup-configuration ftp://1.1.1.1/router/startup-backup-3-21-2007 and press Enter
% Invalid flash device name nvram:
% valid flash devices on this platform are -flash : : : (this is the error)
What did I do wrong?  Does anybody know how fix this? Please advise.
Thanks
