Where are the 2008 Support tools???

Where are the 2008 Server Support Tools?

All the documentation that I have says it should be on the 2008 DVD in the Support\Tools directory.  The cab file for installation is missing and I cannot locate them to download anywhere.

I am adding my first 2008 DC to a 2003 domain and need to upgrade the 03 DC...

Many of the support tools are part of Windows Server 2008 now. You can add them by going to Control Panel -> Programs -> Turn Windows features on or off.

The rest are now part of RSAT:

Ok, I think that SP1 may include these items by default...

Can you go to:

Control Panel -> Program -> Turn Windows features on or off -> Remote Server Administration Tools and enable the item?
