Troubleshooter: Installing ESM on a Win2K PC

How do you install the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) Exchange System Manager (ESM) snap-in on a Windows 2000 box? I need to manage Exchange 2000 Server from my computer, instead of the server.

Run Exchange 2000 setup, but choose ESM as the only component you want to install. Remember to update your administrative workstation as Microsoft releases new Exchange 2000 service packs; the service pack setup installer is smart enough to update only the ESM components.
