I don't know of one that is nice and pretty for documentation.  However, one handy thing about Windows 2000 (if that's what you are using) is that you can export configuration settings from the MMC.  If you go to the top item in a tree (for example "Computer Management" in the Computer Management MMC) on the left side, click on "Action" (or just right click the item) and then "Export List..." you can dump your entire configuration for that tree into a text file.  This is very handy info to have if a server goes down and can be a good part of your documentation set.

You might like to try the configuration auditor  from www.ecora.com, it documents the server and domain for you.
