The only thing wrong with that guide is it fails to advise you to install SP2 or a third party firewall before connecting to the internet, failure to do so will leave you open to instant infection by the Blaster worm, we experimented with this once, it took anywhere from 20 seconds to 3 minutes to become infected.
