Limited acces of active directory from XP machine.

I want to know how can have limited access of Active Directory from XP Workstation.
I have installed Admin pack on xp machine, but i can see all the objects and users by that.

I want to set limited access.
i want to give one main user access to reset or change the password of one group of members only.

I want to know how can i filter the view of main user by which he will be able to view only one particuler group of users.

By default, all Authenticated Users have read access to all of Active Directory; this can be modified only after extensive testing, as it can render features like Group Policy unusable.

You can create a limited-view Taskpad for a delegated administrator as follows:
in AD, place this user in a particular container, right click this container and select DELEGATION.

In delegation, add this particular user, then you can give this user permission to reset password for users.

I want he will be able to see and modify only one group

LauraEHunterMVP i wil try your isea in couple of day and let you know

If you delegate control to a group, then you can build and a custom taskpad which only lets the users see the objects and tasks that you deem necessary. See for an example of how to do this.
