I have used that stand dozens of times on wheels with cassettes. Its a great truing stand for the price (in your case, free, can't beat that price). I got mine basically for free as well, the seller threw it in for free with a used bike repair stand I bought. I would just take the wheel and stand to the Performance store and have them show you how to use it.
If I was running a bike shop, I would get a better stand, but for medium to heavy homeowner use, it is more than sufficient.
The legs of the stand mount just like the dropouts on your bike. So be sure to spread them enough to hold your wheel. Wider wheels need the legs spread out further. Loosen the QR skewer, and the wheel will mount right into place.
