How do I install Hyper V managment snapin on Server 2008 R2 Enterprise edition?

It's official, experts, I am crying UNCLE!

Tonight marks my 3rd straigt evening doing something that is so simple in VMWARE.  Manager my guest machines.

I installed the FREE Hyper V Server 2008 R2 addition on a new server.  Easy, took 30 mnutes.  After locating and attempting to install  numerous different Hyper V managment installation files, learning that the Managment snapin will NOT run in Vista Home (1 evening wasted).  Would be nice if MSFT would make this part far easier!

Ok, so I hijacked my family's Vista Media Center, 64 bit, and got the snap in installed, running, etc.  Great, untill my wife wants to watch the news! (2nd evening)

So, (3rd Evening)  I installed a virtual Windows 2008 Enterprise Edition R2 on top of my HyperV server, that I would like to use to replace my Server 2003 Enterprise edition, and  to manage my Hypervisor Server 2008 R2 box.

I am unable to locate an install file for Server 2008, yet I read that it is availble as a snapin for Vista and Server 2008.

Any pointers would be GREATLY appriciated!  

If Microsoft made this process as simple as setting up a WHS connector, it would be a vast improvement.  Why not siimply do a \\HyperV\tools\setup.exe and have it examine the platform, and do the managment tool install automatically.  Am I missing something?

Many Thanks!
