Need Help on PHP: Beginner

P: 6
Hi, I begin to write PHP but run into problem already.
First, I do not know where to put my PHP code? Where is the IIS Root Directory? (I'm using Windows XP).
I have run Installer... but when I open my browser and type:
http://localhost/hello.php, what I got is an error message:

<p>This PHP CGI binary was compiled with force-cgi-redirect enabled. This
means that a page will only be served up if the REDIRECT_STATUS CGI variable is
set, e.g. via an Apache Action directive.</p>
<p>For more information as to <i>why</i> this behaviour exists, see the <a href="http://php.net/security.cgi-bin">manual page for CGI security</a>.</p>
<p>For more information about changing this behaviour or re-enabling this webserver,
consult the installation file that came with this distribution, or visit
<a href="http://php.net/install.windows">the manual page</a>.</p>

I really do not understand how to make my first PHP "Hello World" works?
Probably this is stupid question but please help.
Thanks!
