[postgis-users] ShapeFile Import

I am attempting to use the shapefile conversion/upload found in the 

shp2pgsql "dv99_00.shp" Public.Temp3 | psql -d Temp_

If I understand correctly there is the shape file, the table to be generated 
then the table to drop.

However I get two problems.

1 - I get message that the shape files can not be opened.

2 - I'm asked for a password. When I enter the database password I get 
message that the password was rejected - but in refernce to the name of this 
computer - which has no password.

If anyone can help I would appreciate it.
