getting serial port equipment to work in xp

i have purchased a usb to serial converter from click here

however, whilst installing software for the serial device (not the drivers that came with the converter) it is asking which com port i would like to assign to the device. i selected com port 1 and the device is not communicating as expected (or at all). which com port option should i choose? i have a choice of 4 but don't actually have a com port!

any help greatly appreciated.

Does to USB to serial convertor not tell you which com port it has created? I would expect com 4.
