Debug SQL 2008 "Stored Procedure using the Management Studio?

I need to debug sevaral stored procedures that are on a linked server.  I see there is a way to do this using Visual Studio.

IThe Management Studio has a Debug menu, implying that debugging can be done.  If so, how do you get the stored procedure in a window to debug.  With Visual Studio, you ger a "step into"  option when you right click on a stored procedure name.  I don't see this in Management Studio.  

How do I do this?

Thanks!

You can debug in Management Studio for SQL Server 2008: go to view|Tollbars and select "debug"
You can also do more sophisticated debugging in BIDS (Business Intelligence Development Studio) which is in fact the same as Visual Studio for SQL Server developers which you can download from Microsoft Download Centre.
