Which exams required to obtain an MCITP?

Can someone please explain to me which exams are required to obtain an MCITP. MS list a whole bunch at this page ( http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/mcitp.aspx#tab2 ) but no mention of which exams are mandatory. I remember the MCSE had specific exams (with optionals/electives) that one needed to pass to obtain an MCSE.

Or is the MCITP broken into parts such as Windows Client or Windows Server. Which would I need? I'm looking for something similar to MCSE but Server 08 based, and to earn the MCITP title.

You need

70-640 configuring Active Directory
70-642 Configuring windows server 2008 network infrastructure
70-646 Windows server administration
70-647 Windows Enterprise Administration

This will give you server 2008 enterprise administrator mcitp.

Is there a certification below enterprise, like a server administrator? which exams are required for this? or is there some website out there that explains this clearly?

Unlike the old MCP/MCSA/MCSE track the new MCTS/MCITP track are more technology and job focused.

E.g. Not only is it broken down by Client/server, but also what your job role is:
The MCITP: Enterprise Admin replaces the MCSE,  and the MCITP: Server Admin replaces the MCSA.  However as the certs are more job focused, both the MCITP: EA and the MCITP: SA are the same level cert (unlike the MCSA and MCSE where the MCSE was alot higher).

MCITP: Enterprise Support Tech (for Vista) requires: 70-620 & 70-622
MCITP: Consumer Support Tech (for Vista) requires: 70-620 & 70-623.
MCITP: Server Admin requries: 70-640, 70-642 & the 70-646
MCITP: Enterprise Admin requires: 70-640, 70-642, 70-643, 70-647 and a client exam (eg 70-620 or 70-680)
MCITP: Enterprise Support Desktop Tech 7 (for Windows 7) requires: 70-680 & 70-685
MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Administrator 7 (for Windows 7) requires:  70-680 & 70-686

And this is just a handful of the MCTS/MCITP credentials for support.
