Selenium Grid Install Issue

I'm  trying to install selenium grid and so far I've downloaded and properly installed java and Apache Ant. Apache ANT and Java both show as successfully installed. I just downloaded and unzipped to my desktop the selenium-grid-1.0.8. Selenium says that all you have to do is unzip and validate install in DOS using 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.

It finally worked these are the steps I took in DOS to get a confirmed install:

C:\Users\Administrator>cd desktop

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

     [echo] Apache Ant(TM) version 1.8.2 compiled on December 20 2010
     [echo] Java 1.6
     [echo] ********************************************************************

     [echo] Congratulations, your setup looks good. Have fun with Selenium Grid!

Thought others might find this helpful to get a successful install message since there was no other answers that showed clear steps on how to achieve a successful install confirmation! Hope this helps others.
