Subject Installation problem

Dear friends,

I am trying to install Firebird on a server that I access by Windows remote
The server is (I think, I have never seen it in the flesh) HP Proliant
ML350 G4 with Intel Xeon 3/00 GHz chip., Running Windows Server 2003
Enterprise edition.

First I installed an Apache2 server, which works OK so I assume TCP/IP is
up an running on the server.

Then I downloaded and ran Firebird- and the
resulting directory structure looks OK.

Next thing I wanted to do was change the sysdba password using gsec. In
the Command Prompt I did:

C:\Program Files\Firebird\Firebird_1_5>bin\gsec -user sysdba -password

and got:

unavailable database
unable to open database

To check that security.db is there I did:

C:\Program Files\Firebird\Firebird_1_5>dir security.*

and got:

Volume in drive C has no label.
Volume Serial Number is 0064-6726

Directory of C:\Program Files\Firebird\Firebird_1_5

02/05/2004 01:05 AM 3,072 security.fbk
10/03/2005 01:05 AM 643,072 security.fdb
2 File(s) 646,144 bytes
0 Dir(s) 32,080,685,568 bytes free

So my question is, what have I missed that I am unable to run gsec?
