    Let's say I want to integrate my old Windows 9x machines into my Windows 2000 Domain. In order for them to use be able to search for resources and such using Active Directory, Directory Service Client software must be loaded on each 9x machine. Is this software included on a folder somewhere on the Windows 2000 Server disk or does it have to be purchased separately?

    (I also learned that, with this software on board, although the 9x machines will be able to search active directory, they cannot be administered by Group Policy...just a trivia tidbit).

    I think its included under Client\Win9x\ on the server CD. I've played around with it. The only comments i have are that every win98 update that you put on you have to reinstall it as it gets wiped out. :D
