Octave-Forge Windows Installer (2.1.73) Can't load Forge Packages

Hi all, 

I am trying to get started with Octave and have so far had success (after a
bit of work) using built in functions and GNU Plots etc. 
I would now like to use some of the Octave-Forge functions, as I want to
load .wav files for some sound processing. I am however having a lot of
problems with this; and to date have not been able to get any Octave-Forge
functions working. I suspect that it is a path issue so my octave paths are
listed below: 

Octave's search path contains the following directories: 

>From what I heave read I should be able to load the Octave-Forge functions
by using: 
"pkg load all" 
"pkg load _package_name" 

Neither of these commands work for me, I just get a syntax error. I
installed Octave using the Octave Forge for Windows binary 2.1.73 (Windows
Installer March 24, 2006 ) The link called “testing” on Octave Site. 

Any tips on how I can debug my setup to get the Octave Forge Packages
working? What is the simplist way to isolate the problem, are there any
simple test calls I can make? 
Naturally any help is most appreciated. 

Octave WIndows Installed (2.1.73) 
Windows XP (‘cause I have to!)
