Hi,
If you have setup of sql server then install the following for management studio

For x86
SQL-Server-2008\x86\Setup\sql_ssms.msi

For x64
SQL-Server-2008\x64\Setup\sql_ssms.msi

yes you can download and install it Management Studio Express but if you have registered version of SQL Server 2008 then you can find management studio in that CD on above mentioed location.
