[ns] beginner question (help!)

Sorry to ask something so obvious:
I'm just getting started w/ ns, and decided to use the windows binary to
play w/ it. I downloaded the binary, and when I run it, I get the ns
prompt, which is good. nam also works fine, which is good. However, when I
run the first example in the Greis tutorial, it hangs in the "$ns run"
command. When I look at the nam.out file, I see that it was generated fine
(even checked it for more complex examples), so it seems like the problem is
in calling the "finish" procedure. However, since nam works I can run it
manually after ns hangs.
I heard somewhere that a "HOME" variable needs to be set? Also,
anything else I need to do? So far I've just downloaded the binaries and
unzipped (using ns2.1b5 and nam "release" version).
Thanks for any help,
