    Unhappy help installing SQLPlus Help

    I'm trying to install SQLPlus help but when I run the helpbld.sql script I get these prompts ("Enter value for 1:" and "Enter value for datafile:") I have no idea what they are. Can anyone help me please?

    SQL> @oracle/ora81/sqlplus/admin/help/helpbld.sql

    Enter value for 1:

    SP2-0137: DEFINE requires a value following equal sign
    Table dropped.
    Table created.
    Grant succeeded.

    Enter value for datafile:

    Look at the header of the file. You should see something like this:
    -- Copyright (c) 1983, 1998 by Oracle Corporation. All Rights Reserved.
    -- NAME
    --   helpbld.sql
    --   Builds the SQL*Plus HELP table and loads the HELP data from a
    --   data file.  The datafile must exist before this script is run.
    -- NOTES
    --   To run this script, connect as SYSTEM and pass the datafile to be
    --   loaded as a parameter e.g.
    --       sqlplus system/ @helpbld.sql helpus.sql
