Adding Music to MY Slideshow?

I have never been into getting/saving music to listen to via my "puter - so I am a REAL NOOB about what this entails. ALL I want to do though is find the right song or 2 and get it to run with My Slideshow [WMC].
Can someone PLEASE tell me, VERY SIMPLY, step by step, where/how to do this?

TKS michael

So, open WMC, go to picture library, in upper part of the screen you'll see slide shows, click that, next screen, click create slide show and name it, click next, choose picture library, add pictures that you want to view in slide show (click on pic you'll see the pic marked, or the folder, and click select all, click next. next screen click add more, choose music library, choose your song/s, next, create, enjoy.
hope this helps, cheers

To answer my own question; Yes. After playing around with it I found that you cand. Just right click the slide show that was made/saved and up pops your options.

Yeap, but I think you'll lose the animated effects on the DVD.

Thanks for sharing. It's nice for a simple picture show. I usually use Power Point for picture shows which has a lot more options. But for a simple show, this is a nice alternative (as is WMM).
