Sql Server reporting service with WSS 3.0 ????

Hi All Experts,
 I have wss 3.0 (free version) and Sql server 2008. Now i have so many requirement of creating reports with good design.
I heard about SSRS reporting. So is it possible that i can make reports from this service. I do not have any idea how to create report from it.
Is there ant another way so i can use some template to make web based reports?

Any comments would be appreciate !!!

Hi,
 It's telling
System Requirements


The computer must meet the following software requirements:
Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 or Windows SharePoint Services 2007 with .NET Programmability Support.

If running on Microsoft Windows Server 2003, have the latest service packs (x86 only) installed, and configure the server to run as an Application Server with ASP.NET 2.0 enabled.
SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services. (Supported SQL Server editions include Standard, Evaluation, Developer, and Enterprise.)
Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 or Office SharePoint Server 2007. The Reporting Services Add-in is not supported on earlier versions of Windows SharePoint Services.
The Web sites cannot be enabled for Anonymous access.
Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 with SP2 or later. Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0 is strongly recommended.

So is it compatible with WSS 3.0??

It's a bit strangely put, but you can pretty safely assume that by Windows SharePoint Services 2007 they mean WSS 3.0 as later they stipulate :
Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 or Office SharePoint Server 2007. The Reporting Services Add-in is not supported on earlier versions of Windows SharePoint Services.
which means WSS 2.0 or SharePoint 2003 or earlier
