Server Performance Monitoring

I need to measure the performance of my Wndows 2003 Server, as far as disk utilization, memory usage, and network connectivitiy.  I know the performance logs can track the information, however, I don't like the info it gives out (it makes it hard to explain numbers to non-tecnical people).  Does anyone know of any utilities that can present detailed graphics to server monitor server performance?  I just need something that can do simple graphs, detailing the various dealing in performance issues.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Are using performance program or task manager or netmon  ?
USe perfmon and dump the logs to excel to create a graph.
