Default need help in testing and configuration of mysql

I'm a beginner at all this. I think I am doing everything that the book, "Beginning PHP, Apache, MySQL Web Development" instructs me to do. It says,

"For Windows 2000/XP/NT, at the Dos prompt, change directories until you are in the MySQL server main directory."

Now the command prompt on the current edition of XP Home edition seems to appear different than the example shows, but I typed

"cd C:\Program Files\MySql\MySql Server 5.0"
and successfully changed the directory as instructed.

Now it instructs me to enter, "C:\>C:\mysql\bin\mysqld -install"
I see that there is a problem already in the format of the command prompt, so it doesn't look like it can practically work, but I tried a lot of different things and I still can't figure out how to test the installation of MySQL. I am not good at dealing with the command prompt but would like to learn. Any help would be appreciated.
