problem in building ant

I am following the step for buling Ant from /docs/manual/index.html.
When i give the command ant in the comand prompt, i get a message 'ant' is not recognised as an internal/ external command, operable program or batch file.. whats wrong... i am supose to get a mesage as
Buildfile: build.xml does not exist!
Build failed

the second problem is that when i omitted this installation check for Ant, and tried to proceed with "Building Ant" from the index.html,
When i give the comand-
build -Ddist.dir= dist
I get a message saying Access is denied..
Please tell me where i am wrong..I am trying to find a solution to this problem since a week..

Best regards and thanks.
