It does now.  It did not when I first ran the command, however 
I just created the directory /passwd/passwords
and re ran the command as root, and still no luck.
I think you only need to create the directory /passwd, then use 'touch' to
create the file, passwords 

Thanks Thomas,
Not familiar with the "touch" command, can you point me to info on it, or
the command syntax?

 Not sure if htpasswd creates the password file.  If not, the as root, run:
touch passwords ,in the  /passwd directory.  It will be an empty file, but
the 'htpasswd -c' should create this for you.
I think you have a permissions problem so if you create the passwrds file
with touch, you probably won't be able to add the password to it using
htpasswd either.
Where are you creating these directories?  In the past when I used this, my
passwd directory was /var/www/passwd/
