pkzip & long file names

I'm trying to backup all my files.  Thus:

pkzip -r c:\backups\backup1.zip c:\documents and settings\all
users\shared documents\*.*

This code gets an error message suggesting there is nothing to
compress, please help - what should the code be?

Quote any path with spaces in it ...

e.g.
pkzip -r some.zip "C:\my files\*"
