I'm trying to connect to our SSRS reporting server, but in my local SSMS, the Connect drop-down on Object Explorer only lists Database Engine and SQL Server Compact. I only installed SSMS this week, so do I need any additional installs or what?

Management Studio Express cannot manage reporting services, you need the full version SSMS for that.
