I'm  trying to install selenium grid and so far I've downloaded and properly installed java and Apache Ant. I just downloaded and unzipped to my desktop the selenium-grid-1.0.8. Selenium says thats all you have to do and to validate install in DOS with the following commands:

cd selenium-grid-1.0
ant sanity-check

cd selenium-grid-1.0 returns the following error:
C:\Users\Administrator>cd selenium-grid-1.0
The system cannot find the path specified.

ant sanity-check returns:
C:\Users\Administrator>ant sanity check
Buildfile: build.xml does not exist!
Build failed

Need help fixing these two issues to move forward.

where you unzipped to? If you have a folder on desktop selenium-grid-1.0 you must use

cd C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\selenium-grid-1.0 if your user name ist Administrator

Better way you unpack the zip file to a folder like c:\temp and run from there

Installing to the desktop was fine I just didn't know that you had to take the following steps to get the confirmation.

C:\Users\Administrator>cd desktop

C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop>cd selenium-grid-1.0
The system cannot find the path specified.

C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop>cd selenium-grid-1.0.8

C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\selenium-grid-1.0.8>ant sanity-check
Buildfile: C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\selenium-grid-1.0.8\build.xml
