Where do I find the active directory reports so that I can continue migration to server 2008?

I was following the migration steps here http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Exchange/A_2881-Migrate-Small-Business-Server-2003-to-Exchange-2010-and-Windows-2008-R2.html And at one of the first steps (Check the health of your Active Directory by running DCDIAG, if there is anything reported as an error fix it before moving on).  I went to run DCDIAG and I get an error that states that "Windows cannot find DCDIAG".
Any thoughts on how to view this active directory report or why the file is missing?

To clarify for anyone else.  Support Tools is on Disc 2 of the Server 2003 installation disks.

I have SBS 2003 SP 2 and was unable to locate the support tools.  But I did get them installed from disk 2.  Thanks for your help.
