Ant binary distribution doesn't function when installed according to docs

I'm running windows 2000 Professional on an intel P3.

I downloaded and installed ant 1.2 binary distribution exactly according to the documantation
except that I added c:\ant\bin\ to my path instead of %ANT_HOME\bin\

when I run ant (c:\>ant) I get a java usage message.
C:\> ant
Usage: java [-options] class [args...]
           (to execute a class)
   or  java -jar [-options] jarfile [args...]
           (to execute a jar file)

where options include:
    -cp -classpath <directories and zip/jar files separated by ;>
              set search path for application classes and resources
              set a system property
              enable verbose output
    -version  print product version
    -? -help  print this help message
    -X        print help on non-standard options

What gives?
