For the GUI and CLI solutions to mean much to you, you need access to the tools that are used in the examples. For this reason, in the majority of cases and unless otherwise noted, we used only tools that are part of the default operating system or available in the Resource Kit or Support Tools.
The Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000 Resource Kit tools can be installed on Windows XP and provide numerous utilities that aid administrators in their daily tasks. More information on the Resource Kit can be found at the following web site: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/reskits/. Some of the Resource Kit tools are free; for others you must buy the Resource Kit.
Windows Support Tools also includes many "must have" tools for people who work with Windows XP. The installation MSI for the Windows Support Tools can be found on an XP CD in the \support\tools directory.
