How to add a new Windows client to NetBackup?

Hi guys,
I have a Windows 2003 server that I would like to backup using our NetBackup system. I am new to NetBackup (experienced with Backup Exec) so I am not sure of the steps. I already purchased a new Windows agent license. But I am not sure how to proceed.
Our current setup is:
NetBackup running on a Solaris 9 box
Quantum LTO drives
we have a mix of Windows, UNIX, Oracle and Exchange jobs defined and running fine.
Can someone send me instructions on how to add a new Windows server to the backup jobs?
Thanks in advance.
