Getting 404 on Peopleresults.aspx

Q.
Trying to setup a people search. I noticed there was a web-part forthis, I've added it to my main page but when I search for something Igot a 404 not Found on peopleresults.aspx.
Sol.
In sharepoint 2007 it will throw 404 if by default if you have not created a site
with Search Center Template. Create a new sitecollection and in the Template
select Enterprise -> Search Center template (with Tabs or regular).
Once you have the site create you will just select People Search Webpart
Edit -> Modify Shared WebPart and in the Miscellaneous section change theTarget search results page URL to /sites/SearchCenter/results.aspx.Where i have created "searchcenter" i createde it under "sites", try to search after
that guess it will work..
