Configuing VS2008 (or VS2010) and TFS to use Beyond Compare

I've been really enjoying using Visual Studio 2008 and TFS for production development for the first time, but I hate the default file compare tool.

Here is a great blog post with simple instructions on how to configure VS2008 to use Beyond Compare (the best windows file comparison tool):
