razor installation

I am evaluating puppet/razor, so this is a beginner's question:

I have puppet server/client pair installed on two VMs with RHEL 6 on them. Client and server recognize each other and all seems well. I would like to install razor and eventually provision client machines from bare metal up. The razor installation instructions say very clearly: "Do not install Razor on your Puppet master." Port conflict and all that...

I set up a third VM, and installed dnsmasq on it, according to this page, and it seems OK. Beyond that point the documentation just loses me. I assume that I am to install a razor server on this third VM, but how? Do I have to install the entire PE package? Does the puppet server on my first VM get to install it remotely? If so, how is that done? Can anybody provide a concise answer?

A simple, three-step "this is how you get started with razor" instruction page would be most welcome.

I was also confused myself, but after going through the steps several times it started to make sense.

Anyways..does anyone know if razor supports older version of puppet? e.g. Puppet Enterprise 3.3.2

The docs clearly state howto setup razor server.
Setup a supported OS, install the puppet agent, register the node and create a group for the node.
Assign the razor class (configure the microkernel by downloading and assing the var to the downloaded file) and wait for setup to finish.
Doesn't take me not more than 30m.
