Plugins Settings

Hello all!
I am new to intelliJ and would really appreciate the help.
I am trying to set up a module in order to creat a plugin.
But i am stuck on the 3rd window where you have to specify the Project JDK.
I understood from the help files that i have to configure it to have the development kit SDK. I downloded that but it is just not getting recognized as a SDK.
Should i add a classpath, sourcepath, or JavaDoc API paths. I have tried all.
Also the 3 different types of plus signs on the left hand side, none of them recognize my folder as an SDK as well.

Please help.

I am using intellij version 5.0.1 in a windows environment.

You should have unzipped the development kit over your IDEA installation. Then,
add your IDEA installation folder as a JDK.

Should i unzip it in the plugin Folder, or just under where intelliJ is stored?
Also the whole kit is about 81Mb unzipped. Should i put the whole folder or just the Plugins folder and the DevKit folder within in it.
thank you!

Sorry, you had explained it clearly! I just managed to mess it up in my head.
It worked.
Thanks!
