do you know whether i can copy a performance montor job from one server to another?  I've created the job under performance logs and alerts and it's running just fine. I need to set teh same monitor for 40 systems! Can the job be copied or is anyone aware of any free tools?

Save you settings to a htm and then import to the other servers.

You can also do a "Save As" .msc and move it to another server and open it in perfmon.  The only time you would run into an issue with this is if one of the perf counters were not on the new server.
