Active Directory Backup and Restore

Hi, I have a question.
I need to backup a Windows 2000 DC Server, but I don't want to use a third-party backup agent (such Veritas, ARCServe, ... etc).
Does Windows 2000 have some tool to perform this operation?
How can I restore this backup in another machine, with different hardware components?
The "Emeregency Repair Disk" or the "Backup System State" can do this?

Thank you, and sorry by my English.

To backup an active directory you can use the NTBackup tool on the DC and YES you must backup system state.

When restoring you will need to know about Active Directory Services Restore Mode and Authoritative and Non-Authoritative Restores:

ERD is used to recover the OS in the event that you don't have a backup or have installed a driver that casues a bluescreen on boot - or similar nasty.
