MS4W has several packages pre-configured for your existing MS4W  
installation...which means you won't have to create folders or apache  
aliases etc.  So that means you can download the package named  
"MapServer Itasca Demo Application" from http://www.maptools.org/ms4w/index.phtml?page=downloads.html 
  and extract that AT THE SAME ROOT as your existing ms4w installation  
(in your case V:/).  Then restart Apache and look for a new link on  
the localhost page.

If you still feel lost you can always contact me directly for my  
support rates.

have fun.
