Nah, 'fraid not. There will be a release of an Admin Pack after Vista is
released... but until then, you can still access most things using MMC. Type
"mmc /a" in the Run command and you can add snap-in's to the console.
What I did on my Longhorn Server, is simply make shortcut's to my remote
machines and stick them as a folder on my desktop. You can do this with the
command line "mstsc /v:IP" - replacing the IP with the IP of the computer
