You run the command from the second CD contained in the windows 2003 cd set.
This command is to update the active directory schema.
Lets say you run a win2k domain and you want to introduce a win2k3 machine.
You would put in the second cd into the win2k machine and go to a command line and browse to the cd drive and then run that command.
It wqould update the schema on the win2k machine to alow a win2k3 domain controller as well.
