These tools P.J. speaks of can exist on your local machine (XP) by downloading adminpak.exe. this exe will install the admin snap-ins that you need to manage your AD without having to remote desktop. You can also use DHCP, DNS, WINS, FSRM... all kinds of crap. check it out, its pretty cool.

Congratulations on your successful setup of AD. The next task is to create users, groups, etc. Take the following steps to accomplish this:
Click start - Click Manage your server - click active directory users and computers.
Expand the domain name. Click on users. On the right pane, right click and select create - new user. Configure user properties using the on-screen dialog instruction. Provided your network is well configured, you can now use the login details over the network. If you have more question you can email me on
