We are in the process of migrating from a Windows NT administration scheme to using Windows 2003 Avtive Directory.  I was just courious if anyone could point me in the direction of any information that would help me learn more about the simple day to day tasks involved in administering an Active Directory domain.  I have gone through alot of the MCSE exam materials but all the information contained within such matierial, is usually very broad and I would just like to better prepare myself for the daily tasks involved in using Active Directory. (300 users/ 1 domain) Thanks in advance..
