All of this should be covered in the user manual (which should be way more thorough than any random forum posts).

Either way, the basic idea goes like this:
#1 Plug the sound card into your computer via Firewire
#2 Install the drivers
#3 Switch the unit as the default sound card in control panels of Windows XP.
#4 Select the unit as your sound card in your recording software.
