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....

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.

How can  I know if it's already configured? (I'm not a DBA, we dont have one, I'm a developer, so any help is greatly appericiated)
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.
