Weight paint

Fairly new to blender ive started to make some objects and following tutorials. Now i was trying to do a softbody tutorial. It makes use of the weight paint view. The weight paint isnt a option in my blender 2.37a. is it a plugin of some kind ? and where to get it and where to place it so it laods on blender startup. If it isnt a plug in any idea as in why its not showing ?

Thanks in advance for the help

You have an older version.

Ctrl-Tab in Object mode.

%<

Its in the 2.4 version

You can still do it in 2.37a! Select the object (your softbody) that you wish to weight paint. From the 3D View menu bar choose Weight Paint from the drop down box.

Hope this helps.
