How do I get Outlook to auto-archive my messages to a folder that I have
already set up in my personal folders? When I go to the properties for the
folder I want to have auto-archived and I click on the auto-archiving tab and
then go to where I am supposed to be able to "browse" for where I want my
messages auto-archived to, it takes me to programs folders within Outlook or
something rather than letter me choose one of my personal folders. Please
help! Thanks.

You can't direct autoarchive to a specific Outlook folder. You direct it to a
PST, which is a separate file you create in some Windows folder, and Outlook
will create a folder in that PST whose name matches the folder containing the
message you wanted archived.

Archive send the msgs to a seperate set of personal folders, by default
named Archive it wont archive to a folder you have created within your
default Personal Folder set. Theres not actually much point in that type of
configeration.
The Archive.pst is just another set of Personal Folders, which can be left
open within Outlook
The default location, in WinXP being 'username'\Local Settings\application
Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Archive.pst
