MMC Consoles

I want to create a MMC console for first line support to be able to reset password.  I've created the MMC but to get it to run on a standard Windows XP client PC do I need to install the 2003 server adminpak.

If I do install the adminpak it also install under Administrative Tools things like Domains and trusts, cluster administartor etc which I dont want.  I only want the MMC.  I dont want them to be able to do everything on the server.

To install a specific server administration tool that is contained in Adminpak.msi http://safecomputing.umn.edu/guides/fileandprint.html
Chris StauntonCommented:
You can deploy the admin pak on the machines, these users aren't admins right?  You can remove the tools from the Start Menu and copy your created MMC to the desktop of that machine.  As long as you right click on the OU where your users are and Delegate Control and select the ability to change passwords for the user you select there shouldn't be any worry of tampering with other tools that the AdminPak installs.
