Installing Windows Remote Management (WinRM) and PowerShell 2.0 on Windows Server 2003 / XP

Windows Remote Management WinRM and PowerShell 2.0 are two very versatile tools that can greatly increase the manageability of your Windows hosts.  Unfortunately it has been somewhat difficult for me locating the most up to date versions of this software.  Basically the package available that installs PowerShell 2.0 also includes the WinRM 2.0 release as well.  Also available at the link below are WinRM/PowerShell 2.0 releases for Windows Vista and Server 2008 R1.

There is a prerequisite that the computer is running Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 SP1.  I have included a link below to .Net 2.0 SP2:
