2008 Server WSUS does not show current products

Hello - we just installed the WSUS role on a 2008 R2 server, and the products options seem to be outdated.  The latest version of Exchange and Windows Server are 2003.  We assumed we would see Exchange and Windows 2010/2008 in the options.  How do we add these?

Thanks

In the WSUS setup, there are products you choose to include in the updates.

i started the synchronization, but it sat at 0% for over 20 minutes.  I stopped it and am checking server settings to see if someting is blocking it..

first sync will take couple of hours -  just check size of your wsus updates folder - if it getting bigger it is working
