I just installed the Reporting Services SP2 beta on my dev-test machine. I had to search into beta newsgroups how to install SharePoint Web Parts onto my SharePoint Services installation: to do that, you need to start a command like:

stsadm.exe -o addwppack -filename “C:Program FilesMicrosoft SQL Server80ToolsReporting ServicesSharePointRSWebParts.cab” -url http://sharepointservername

where STSADM.EXE is a SharePoint utility, by default located in C:Program FilesCommon FilesMicrosoft Sharedweb server extensions60BIN.

I think it’s important to blog this because I haven’t found this information in the readme file and (you guess!) I’m not an expert of SharePoint.

Besides the setup trouble, web parts seems to work fine until now.
