How to use PerfMon on W2K8.R2 to monitor remote server

Is it possible to use PerfMon on Windows 2008 R2 and monitor remote systems?
I have no problem using PerfMon on Windows 2003 to monitor remote systems.
However, when I try to do the same form Widnows 2008 R2, I can't find anywhere to select remtoe systems.

Thank you for your help.

I do not have a server 2008 R2 box o confirm this on, but it worked in server 2008.  can you not right click on the root menu option in perfmon and select "connect to another computer"?
