Not able to Start Server

I am new to websphere. I installed 5.1 and tried to start server. I got the following ....

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
-showversion print product version and continue
-? -help print this help message
-X print help on non-standard options
-assert print help on assert options

I have set JAVA_HOME and classpath properly. I am not sure why above output is coming. Please share the information if anybody has experienced above problem.

Thanks a lot
