XP recovery console story in working mode

Here is the formatting the way I indeed for the script: rem This script allows you to run Server and Exchange administrative tools quickly on your pc without logging out your user, and keeping your user out of the Domain Admins security group. ****IMPORTANT NOTES TO USER ** rem In order for this entire script to work, you need to have the following installed on your PC: 1- Your adminpak.msi tools installed off the server CD 2- The Exchange Administration Tools (only if you want to administer Exchange quickly) 3- The Choice.exe and Sleep.exe files - if you installed the resource kti for your server os then make sure these two files are in your path statement. 4- see the comments below in each section where two files need to be copied and renamed in a different directory.
