Why can't I administer my Windows .NET Server (Win.NET Server) and Windows 2000 domain from a Windows 9x client?

A. Both Win.NET Server and Win2K provide an adminpak.msi Windows Installer file that contains the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-ins for administering Win.NET Server and Win2K servers for deployment on a Windows XP or Win2K client machine. Although you can download the MMC framework from Microsoft's Web site for execution on Win9x clients, the adminpak.msi file won't run on Win9x systems and Microsoft has no plans to enable this support. The only option is to enable Win2K Server Terminal Services on the server and create a client session to the server.
