Installing System Center Virtual Machine Manager

System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) allows you to manage multiple virtualization hosts from one console.  With other virtual management software, you can only manage the virtual machines (VMs) on the local host.  With SCVMM, you can manage the VMs on hosts running Hyper-V, Virtual Server 2005 R2, and VMWare ESX Server.

First off, you need a copy of SCVMM.  You can download a 180 day trial version here. 
Once you download a copy, you simple need to install it.  First, execute the installation file with administrative level permissions.
