How Do I Install Master Data Services?

I'm wanting to install Master Data Services, however when I run the 'SQL Server Installation Center' application and point it to my SQL Server 2012 32 bit media to add features to my instance there is no Master Data Services feature listed for me to select?!? Everything else is listed, but not MDS. Please help. TIA.

It seems MDS is not available in 32 bit. Only 64 and Enterprise or BI editions. http://technet.microsoft.com/library/cc645993(SQL.110).aspx#MDS

Many thanks. That's rather annoying as I'm trying to study for the 70-463 exam, of which MDS is a requirement.

Thanks, however I've read that link previously. The trouble is that when I use SQL Server Setup, the Master Data Services option is NOT available on the Feature Selection page under Shared Features.
