Unless you can specify what you really one, it is hard for me to pin point what your requirement is.

1. yes, it can be used on home or business networks.

2. you need to make sure the assessing computer has enough privileges to run the MAP Toolkit Wizards as the host needs to access other computers remotely.

3. there are four methods to discover target computers: AD based, LANMAN based, import file based, and IP range based. choose your way according to your situation.

4. the target computers are required to allow access to their WMI and Remote Registry Services through the firewall.

5. yes, the assessment can be done in off-peak hours if all the related computers are online (available).

6. yes, the MAP Tool is compatible with W2K, W2K3, W2K8.

for more information, see the Getting_Started_Guide.en.doc mentioned above.

hope it helps,
