VMWare Server 2 - managing multiple servers

I have three servers with VMWare Server 2 installed, each running multiple virtual machines.  Currently I have to open three different browser windows, one for each server, to manage them.  Is there a way of combining all of this management into a single monitoring window?

Unfortunately with using the free VMware Server software, you can't really (natively from VMware) do anything like this. VMware's ESX server product offers centralized management.

I believe there are third party centralized management clients, like Microsoft's MOM - but VMware ESX Server is still the "preferred" method of running virtual machines for business when there's more than one box (according to VMware, not me)
