Build the libraries? I understand what that means. How do I do that?

Hi boost
New to C++ and boost so please bear with me.
I have downloaded the boost library (1.3.2) from on to a Windows XP
platform running Visual Studio .NET. I've started a C++ project however when
I compile it, having added the regex class, I get the following error:
fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'libboost_regex-vc71-sgd-1_32.lib'
I have include the lib path for boost and that worked OK with the other
libraries but not this one. Any one got any ideas?

did you build the boost libraries for your compiler(apparently VC++7.1)?
