VMWare ESXi Client

I am implementing ESXi, and as I was going through the installation manual I found this:
After you complete initial setup of your host machine, you can install the software
needed to manage ESX Server 3i. For your first evaluation experience, you will install
the VI Client to manage a single host.
Use the VMware Infrastructure Management Installer CDROM to install the VI Client
on a desktop or laptop computer that is to be used as a management station. If you did
not purchase the VMware Infrastructure Management software, use the VI Client
package downloaded onto your host during the ESX Server 3i installation or an
evaluation copy downloaded from the VMware Download Center.
The VI Client must be installed on a Windows machine that has network access to the
ESX Server 3i host. The management station must also have Internet access.
We did not purchase the VMware Infrastructure Management software. Where can I find the VI Client package?

VI client is included with ESX, just http over to the host and down load the VI client.

OK, great. I haven't begun implementation yet, I was just reading through the manual. Will try this tomorrow, or Monday.

Good to hear.
