Installing ROOT on Windows XP

I’m an undergraduate physics student new to ROOT. I will be doing research on the BaBar collaboration at SLAC over the coming summer, and I am attempting to learn ROOT in preparation. However, I am having trouble just getting ROOT loaded and running. I downloaded the file root_v5.08.00.win32gdk.tar from the website and unpacked it with WinZip, but I’m not sure what to do from there. I’m running Windows XP, although I have Cygwin installed.
Any help would be greatly appeciated. I’ve never worked with any software like this before, so please be fairly explicit in any suggestions.

Nevermind, I have received the help I needed.
