How to configure sflow on HP 5304XL Switch

I am working on configuring sflow on my hp switch to work with solarwinds netflow.  The documentation for this is terrible.  I have found some things and was able to change a couple items such as receiver device but when I do sh sflow all it displays that sflow is disabled.  How do I enable it?

Thanks,

The 5300s sFlow is a bit complicated compared to the newer switches.  These links should help you out a lot more compared to the HP documentation.
