Add Captcha to own form SA2

Hi, I just bought and installed SA2 after having used SA1 for some time. I was under the impression that I could add a captcha validation to a hand built form using SA2 based on the Webassist sales website:

"Validation is automatically applied to all forms created in SecurityAssist 2, including Captcha for added password retrieval security. Validation can also be applied directly to any forms you create by hand, ensuring any data submitted through your forms meets your standards. Data submitted through forms and added to your database can be secured through several available encryption methods, further ensuring the security of your customer's information."

from : securityassist/

I have my custom form all set, any tips on adding the captcha field?

captcha can only be applied to forms created by the security assist wizard, the captcha graphic cannot be applied to custom forms, you would need for toolkit for this:

Oh. You can imagine my confusion when I read this in an email promoting the new SA2 to me:
Form Validation
Ensure the data submitted though your forms meets your standards. Advanced server validations, including Captcha, are available to apply against the forms created in SecurityAssist, or any form you develop on your own.

It appears I can benefit from the new features in SA2 but bought it initially for the standalone captcha implementation. (I could return it under the 15 day guarantee but think I'll hang on to it for later projects).

I'll check out the Toolkit or redo my forms to be SA2 from the ground up. Meanwhile, there should be more careful copy editing on the e-blasts! :)

Thanks for the response.
