Which resource kit utility will show me the contents of a active directory global group from a workstation command prompt?

I'm working from a XP workstation.   Our environment is AD.  In the old NT days the showmbrs.exe file showed the contents of global groups in the domain.  Now I don't see the utiltiy.  Does anyone know what the new utility I need?

You don't need the resource kit for this:

NET GROUP "groupnamehere" /domain

You need the quotes if the group name has a space in it like "domain Admins"

Thanks James,

In a mater domain model how do you force this command to look at the accounts domain instead of the resource domain?

global.exe should do the trick:
global <GroupName> <DomainName>
or
global <GroupName> \\<DCName>
