Using Windows XP mode

OK, so I finally found the right version of XP mode for my system. After downloading and deciding on a drive on where it could go, and with my old XP disk handy, the installation just finished, just like that, no further instructions. I now have this folder



in C:\Programs. Fine. Now what? Can anybody plz help?
Thank you

That guide is 9 years old - things look much different now, but thanks. I'll have to leave it for now as I just discovered I mislaid my telephone, contact list & all, so right now I have to to inform people via mail of the number of my backup phone so I'll be busy for a while and will mark this as solved.
