I tested this on Windows XP (2011-02-28 published binaries). The
behavior seems to be this: You have to navigate through the directory
tree until you are _inside_ the directory you want to open in dired.
Then simply click "Open" (yes, even though there isn't anything

FWIW, this doesn't seems too clean to me. IMO, It would be more
intuitive to be able to select the directory you want to open, and
then click "Open".
