Cannot see BIDS templates in VS2008

I started with Visual Studio 2008, SP1 installed. I then installed SQL Server 2008, including Business Intelligence Development Studio. The install all went fine. I see BIDS in my Programs menu, and it points to the same place as my VS2008. When I select BIDS from my Program menu, VS2008 opens, but there are no SQL Server Business Intelligence projects available. I've seen all the cases where someone attempting to use VS2005 or VS2010, but that's not the case here. I just want to know what I need to do so that I can create SQL Server BI projects in VS2008.

Start your VS2008, click File, then select New, then Project and go from there by choosing the type and template you want to use like in attached below:

I see them now. I swear these were not showing up in my Project Types list yesterday. Strange.
