You're welcome. I updated my response to include the guide I followed when rooting.
One caveat: I could not get the Android drivers from the 32bit Android SDK to install in XP. Windows said it couldn't find the software, even though the drivers were where I pointed. I had to get the 64bit SDK, install the drivers on my SO's Win7 laptop, and root from it.
