That's pretty much all you need to do, make the boxes and fill in the names.

Save in the original format in case you want to adjust the slices later.

To make a usable page, use File->Save As… and pick "Slices (*.HTML)" as the format. This will generate the HTML page and make a folder full of the slices.

HREF is the target of the <a> link that will be generated, so enter things.html if you want the link to be <a href="things.html">

The image slices are named automatically.

AFAIK, the custom name field is not used in the generated HTML.
