Setting contextNode parameter for XPath use

I want to use the SelectSingleNode method of the XPathAPI class, but I don't understand how to set the contextNode input parameter which is of type Node.
The context of what I want to be searched is my XML document which is in a file. How do I get my XML document into a Node object so that I can pass it in as the contextNode parameter?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Dave
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
