Backup Exec Recovery Server

Dumb questions;

1. When installing BESR, am I correct in that we install the main server portion to our chosen server - and then the Agents are installed on the machines that we have chosen to backup?  

2. Does this "Agent" then show up in the "Programs list" in "Control Panel" with the word "Agent" in the title?

3. Can an "Agent" for BE2010 work for BESR?  Do both Applications make use of the same agent?

4. I have an associate that I believe mistakendly installed the full application on all of the clients, - is there any reason I should see the Backup Exec Revovery Server application (no reference to "Agent") installed on the client computer?  (see embedded below)

    Thanks Jackieman.  But the chapter answers only 1 of the 4 or 5 questions I pose....   Maybe you saw something in the chapter that I didn't?

    I would like to close this question and award Jackieman only 100 points.  The link he provided was helpful but I'm aware of the manual.  I'm looking for answers to questions that aren't in the manual and Jackieman couldn't or didn't answer these.  I'm grateful for his help but feel the answer was only barely helpful
