Problem in restarting simulation

 I am facing some problem in restarting my simulation. May be I am
committing some mistake in my configuration file. For my first simulation I
am using these commands in configuration file ( a part of course):


numsteps 1000

binaryoutput yes

restartname pijushrestart

restartfreq 10



to start my second simulation from the last point of the my first I am
using the following commands in the configuration file:


numsteps 2000

bincoordinates pijushrestart.coor

binvelocities pijushrestart.vel


I tried running the second configuration file but it is giving some error
related to the coordinate file and velocity file. Since I am running
simulations for longer time, I need to use restart option. I have tried with
binaryrestart option as 'yes' also. I am using NAMD 2.5. Any suggestion or
advice is highly appreciated.
