I went to use netdom and it kept saying

'netdom' is not a recognized command.

Got the Windows 2000 support tools installed from the CD but still got the same error on the server.
Changed the directory to reflect C:/progra~1/suppor~1 and then it worked.

What would be the best thing to do to enable the tools to work from any location listed on the  command line?

Right-click my computer - properties - advanced - environment variables. Click path - edit and add the path to you support tools. OR copy them to a pre-existing folder within the defined paths,
