Default Anyone using BambooInvoice? - Help installing

Hey,
I am really interested in this open source app for invoicing. It uses a web server or runs with a server/database locally on your computer. I have no experience with database programs. I have installed MySQL and have followed the BambooInvoice install instructions to the point where I need to "uplaod " the files to the server (MySQL) and I am stumped. My goal is to run it locally with email and pdf capabilities.
BambooInvoice site:
http://www.bambooinvoice.org/

The install instructions are here (in pdf):
http://acsberks.com/billing/bamboo_install_guide.pdf

I appreciate any help with this. It looks like a great program.
I am installing this on an Asus notebook, XP Pro SP2

I haven't used BambooInvoice but I have tried TurboCash, an opensource Accounting & POS program, you can easily create invoice, there is also an addon so you can link it to OSCommerce for an online shop.

Why not just use Quickbooks or Peachtree? They each have invoicing built into the software.

I am into redunduncy and will use the program in addition to an accounting app. It keeps a database of all invoices which can be easily backed up and it is easy to reference any customers previous business.

If you named your database Bambooinvoice as suggested in the instructions then you simply need to copy the files to \WhereverYouInstalled\MySql\Data\bambooinvoice
Restart the mysql service afterwards, otherwise the you won't be able to see you database.

Thanks seedubya,
