Setting up AD RMS Server 2008

I installed AD RMS on a 2008 R2 Server. I installed SQL as reuqired.
Basically i am looking for a guid on what to do next.
I dont know how to configure it after getting the roles installed.
I tried technet and i get alot of how to install the actual role, but nothing after that.
Any one else who used this have any insight or links? Thanks.

Did you look at this guide. It is pretty well done:

AD RMS Guide

that is a ok guide to walk you through initial role installation but i already did that. I need the steps after the role is installed, how do i do all the options next.
1. On the AD RMS Cluster page, choose to Create a New AD RMS Cluster and then click Next to continue.

2. On the Select Configuration Database page, choose whether to install the limited Windows Internal Database service (not recommended) or to create an RMS database on a separate server running SQL Server 200x.

3. On the Specify Service Account page, choose which service account will be used for RMS (Rights Management Services) by using the Specify button. It cannot be the same account that is used to install AD RMS.

4. On the subsequent page, select Use AD RMS Centrally Managed Key Storage and then click Next.

5. Enter a strong password when prompted, and click Next to continue.

6. Confirm which IIS website (Default Web Site for a dedicated build) will hold the AD RMS web services, and click Next to continue.

7. Type in the FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) that will be used for the AD RMS service. For this example, enter rms.companyabc.com, and then click the Validate button. The FQDN must already be set up to resolve to the IP address of the IIS website on the RMS server. Click Next to continue.

NOTE: Using an SSL certificate for an HTTPS connection to the RMS server is recommended, and can be enabled from this wizard.

8. Enter a descriptive name for the RMS cluster, and click Next to continue.

9. On the AD RMS Service Connection Point Registration page, click Next to register the Service Connection Point (SCP) in AD DS.

10. If installing IIS at the same time, accept the defaults for setup by clicking Next, and then clicking Next again.

11. Click Install to finalize the installation wizard. It may take some time for the installation to complete.

12. Click Finish when the wizard is complete. Restart the server and log back on to complete the install.
The below link will give you the step-by-step instructions on how to AD RMS
