help with coLinux

Alrighty, I downloaded coLinux and installed it on C:\
Now, I read the README and it says that i have to point the XML document to my root filesystem. I have no idea what to put into that XML document...I am not sure if i put like <C:\coLinux\whatever the image name is> or what so i need so help configuring coLinux i guess...i really wanna run debian as soon as possible so if you know how to do this, please help!

oh! some additional information

Here is what is in the XML file by the way

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<block_device index="0" path="\DosDevices\c:\coLinux\vmlinux"
enabled="true" />

<!-- This line can

specify a swap file if you wish, or an additional
image file, it will /dev/cobd1. Additional block_devices can
be specified in the same manner by increasing

the index -->

<block_device index="1" path="\DosDevices\c:\coLinux\swap_device"
enabled="true" />

<!-- bootparams allows you to pass kernel boot

parameters -->

<!-- Initial RamDISK (initrd) support -->
<initrd path="initrd.gz" />

<!-- image allows you to

specify the kernel to boot -->
<image path="vmlinux" />

<!-- this line allows you to specify the amount of memory available
to coLinux -->

size="64" />

<!-- This allows you to modify networking parameters, see the README
or website or wiki for more information -->
<network index="0"

type="tap" />
