VSS2005: how to use labels to allow quick compiling of earlier versions of code?

Using Visual SourceSafe 2005, what do I need to do to tell VSS 2005 that the current version of code should be labelled (or whatever) so that after further revisions I can come back later and get the version of code that was labelled?
