Configuring DNS Caching on Server 2008

I have a Windows 2008 server running as a DC and a DNS server.  I can manage to get the DNS to resolve names for the local domain and forward for others, however with previous versions of windows server there is usually a folder on the left panel of the MMC allowing me to view the cached sites.
For some reason this option is not there so I'm un-sure if the box is actually caching anything.
How do I enable the caching on 2008 to give me this or is it enabled by default and just not displayed?

On the DNS manager you need to switch on the advanced option under the view menu. This enables the cache to be displayed on the left hand side.
