Problems setting up WinXP to run cmake



I am trying to set up the development environment for WinXP. I
followed the instructions in "how-to-build-for-windows.txt" but I get
an error when running:
cmake .

The message is:
CMake Error: CMake was unable to find a build program corresponding to
"Visual Studio 6". CMAKE_MAKE_PROGRAM is not set. You probably need
to select a different build tool.
CMake Error: Could not find cmake module
CMake Error: Could not find cmake module
-- Configuring done

When I set up cmake with CMakeSetup I choose to build for "MSYS
Makefiles". Is that the correct choice?

Somebody having a solution for my cmake problems?
