Add Web References to Visual Studio 2008

So I’m doing a little work connecting to a Currency Exchange rate web service, simple enough.  Normal steps are to right click your solution->Add Web Reference, punch in the WSDL location and bang, web service goodness is at hand.

But with VS 2008 the option I have is "Add Service Reference".  So I run thru these steps and things are smooth again.  But now all the documentation the vendor provided seems way off in terms of naming and such.  Long story short is you need to click the advanced tab

And then go the compatibility section to add it the .NET 2.0 way.
