As someone else pointed out, you canceled image-dired. If you had
answered `y' you might have seen a buffer with thumbnails. I say
`might' because image-dired requires the external tool `convert' to
work, and you run Windows XP where this is not installed by
default. However, you can easily download it, `convert' is part of the
ImageMagick package. After installing it you need to make sure that
convert.exe is in your PATH or you need to configure image-dired and
point out where the file is.

Good luck!
