unace - problems extracting - Error: No files specified

I'm using unace v2.5 on Fedora Core 5

Im probably being a fool here by just not using it correctly, but when i try to extract a folder like this:

# unace e the\ amps\ \(Kim\ Deal\ breeders\ pixies\)\ -\ pacer\ -\ by\ \[SkWid\].a ce /mp3s/amps

i get:

processing archive \ - pacer - by [SkWid].ace
Working: Creating listfile. Please wait.
Working: Reading archive. Please wait.
Error: No files specified.
Operation aborted.

so i tried specifying the files like this:

# unace x the\ amps\ \(Kim\ Deal\ breeders\ pixies\)\ -\ pacer\ -\ by\ \[SkWid\].a ce/the\ amps/1995-pacer/01-pacer.mp3 /mp3s/amps

i get:

Error: No such archive found.

No man pages available, but there is a list of commands and switches etc:

UNACE <command> [-<sw1> ...] <archive> [<base_dir>\] [<files>/@<filelist>]

<Commands> t Test archive integrity
e Extract files v List archive (verbose)
l List archive x Extract files with full path

<Switches> (default) (default)
c[-] Show comments (+) p<pass> Set password
f[-] Full path matching (-) y[-] Assume yes on all queries (-)
o[-] Overwrite files (-)

x<files/@list> Exclude <files> or files in <list> from process

Any help would be very much appreciated, cause im a dumb newb and dont know what im doing. Cheers

Problem solved

For anyone bothered, the solution was to not specify the destination folder, eg
# unace x /path/to/file
rather than
# unace x /path/to/file path/to/destination

thanks to liam for helping with that. im sure there is a way to specify the destination, but to be honest i just dont care, im happy to extract into the parent directory and mv from there!
