managing active directory ---> exchange tasks

Greetings

Recently i bought myself a new computer, and experienced the joys of reinstalling everything onto my new PC.
I Installed many of my admin tools, including being able to manage the active directory.

However, today i was looking at the active directory users and computers and noticed that i'm not able to do exchange tasks, like add emails delete emails, etc.  I can create accounts, but i can't do the exchange tasks.  What did i miss?

my pc: win xp Pro
server: win 2k , exchange 2k enterprise

Install the Exchange System Management Tools on your computer.

Also Install Service Pack 3 (SP3) for Exchange 2000 Server on your computer as well.

Insert the CD and run setup as if you were install Exchange, when present with the installation options, then only select the System Managment Tools..

1. Insert the Exchange 2000 Server installation disc into the appropriate disc drive. Close the Auto Run window, and open a command prompt.
 
2.At the command prompt, type: D:\SETUP\I386\SETUP
(where D: is your CD-ROM drive).
 
3.  On the Welcome to the Microsoft Exchange 2000 Installation Wizard page, click Next.
 
4.  On the End-User License Agreement page, read the agreement, select I agree, and then click Next.
 
5. On the Product Identification page, enter the product identification number found on the back of your Exchange 2000 Server disc case. Click Next. If you get it wrong, keep at it – there are only 8.08281x1038 possible combinations.
 
6.  On the Component Selection page, select 'Custom' option of three different installation options: Typical (Microsoft Exchange Messaging and Collaboration Services and Microsoft Exchange System Management Tools), Minimum (Messaging and Collaboration only), or Custom.

7. Click the Drop Down box by Exchange System Management Tools, select install option
You could leave default installation folder options or change as desired.

8.Select next to install.

9. Sorted.

those directions are great, but it won't let me install it because it says the windows 2000 Administrative tools must be present.

I thought i installed all of the windows 2k tools.
ooh.. wait i'm on an XP machine now.

i installed the equivalent of the adminpak.msi  (the one for XP).
