Reporting Services Configuration tool

" run the 2008 R2 version of the Reporting Services configuration tool from your start menu to configure the 2008 R2 instance "

I'm not sure what that means...I have SQL 2008 R2 installed. I still need to configure it?
My reporting services defaults to an old reporting services. I see 2 reporting services. I want to disable the old one and make sure the 2008 R2 is running....

If it was never configured you'll need to configure the SSRS reporting server.  ONce it's configured, you can turn the old service off and uninstall.

Open the configuration manager - it has little check boxes and icon indicators on the left hand side...  It almost walks you through the process.

You may need to follow along with the installation guide if you've never done it before.
