Question about creating a new registry entry in RegEdit.

Need help adding a registry change on a server. I followed the guideline here on a link from Microsoft. Please view the article below:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/196271

When it mention  on step 3 "On the Edit menu, click New, and then add the following registry entry" am I creating a new key, string value, binary value, DWORD value, multi string value, expandable string value at this point? That is where I am confused. please see the screenshot attached.

DWORD value.

Keys are the folder icons in the left pane.
Values are the items in the right pane.  You can see their type in the middle column.

Just a advise, while attaching any screenshot to questions do not disclose information's / details which is not required.
If you check your attached screenshot in that anyone can see your server hostname, domain name and database path and can try to misuse it.
So, do take precaution about it.

Moving onto your question, as per the article, you need to create a DWORD value.

If you check the step 3 line 4, it is mentioned as 'Value Type: DWORD'.

Just to offer a differing viewpoint - if your network is properly secured, I see no problem with disclosing domain names, IPs, etc.  You'll often see requests for unedited ipconfig results here.  Security through obscurity isn't something to be relied upon.
