How do I Copy Permissions Using Permcopy

I have a Windows 2000 server on which i am mvoing data from one drive to another. After which i need to copy the permissions across. I understand i can do this using permcopy. Where does the permcopy utility have to sit, ie c drive?
I have used the following script to test copying permissions but get an error message saying Network error 123

The server is called GBR123, the folder is test i need to copy the permissions from test to another drive on the same server, the new folder is called test and shared out as new. There are folders and files within the test folder with different permissions.

I use the script below, can someone please tell me what i am doing wrong?

m:test*.* n:new*.*

Thanks
