Quicken Budgets & Loan Accounts

Does anyone know how to get Quicken to budget properly for a loan account? That is, if you actually set up an amortized loan, how do you get Quicken to budget for the interest and principal as a single payment? I’m using Quicken Premier 2007, and it seems like there is no way to track a loan as a loan, but also budget for it as a single item.

Does anyone know if more recent versions (2008, 2009, or the coming-next-week 2010) handle budgets and/or loans more efficiently?
