VM's are not displaying

This is probably a very easy question to people in the know.  I am just messing around with VMware and getting to know it through trial and error and lots of books and google searches!  :)

I have an esxi server  with the hypervisor installed,  I have another box with the Vsphere client installed  I logged into the exsi server (.50) and  I made a 2008 VMware.  

I then installed the Vcenter server on the same box as the Vsphere Client  I logged into (the Vcenter server) and now my VM's are gone.  How to get the Vcenter to point to the exsi server where my VM's are?

Oh and all versions are 5, the newest I believe.
