No success with a package from the Wolfram Website


Hello to all

I am a beginner with Mathematica 5, had no problem with the 10 minute
tutorial  which promises a lot out of this product but getting further is
far from easy just by myself.
So excuse the triviality of my questions.

I would like to use the  package AntiqueNotations available from the Wolfram
website but no success so far.
I downloaded it with the accompanying notebook to

C:\Program Files\Wolfram
Research\Mathematica\5.0\AddOns\ExtraPackages\AntiqueNotations

1- Am I allowed to download it  to this new subfolder ? If not where should
items found on the Web be downloaded ?

Now I read in this  package header that the file is intended to be loaded
into the Mathematica kernel using the package loading commands Get or Needs.

The help browser gives me a hint so I type

 <<AntiqueNotations.m

(I also tried it without the trailing .m)

Result ((both cases)

  Get::noopen: Cannot open AntiqueNotations.m. More.(in red)

2- What is wrong ? How can I read what follows More.

Also after

SetDirectory["ExtraPackages"]

I get

SetDirectory::cdir:

   Cannot set current directory to ExtraPackages. More.

3 Why ?

What sequence of prior commands are necessary before being able  to use a
Package  ?

Thanks in advance for any help.
