You need to install adminpak.msi (on any server installation in the system32 folder) for the administrative tools.
If you only want to install certain tools (instead of all the tools in the package), check here:

Oh, and, no, the DNS *Client* service is *not* the DNS server!

Hi oBdA,

i see the adminpak.msi installed under system32.
I am using windows 2003 web edition, Microsoft product info does not list the adminpak.msi with that edition but i have it installed......somehow confused. :-)
However, it is available for download
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=c16ae515-c8f4-47ef-a1e4-a8dcbacff8e3&displaylang=en

does this download include the DNS management?

That's a rather old version; if for whatever reason you don't want to install from the system32 folder, check here:
Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 Administration Tools Pack
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=E487F885-F0C7-436A-A392-25793A25BAD7&displaylang=en

The default install includes the tools as described in the KB article I linked above (which includes the DNS MMC).
