Setting up the Exchange tabs in ADUC

From a Windows XP Professional PC, how do I get the Exchange tabs in Active Directory Users and Computers for account administration? I know there is something from the Exchange Server CD I need to install on the PC, but what? Are there other dependencies?
This is a commonly asked question. You need to install the Exchange management tools on your workstation from your Exchange Server CD. Then you need to launch MMC using the Active Directory Users and Computers (ADUC) shortcut in Start -> Programs -> Microsoft Exchange. Once in ADUC, you should click Tools -> View Advanced in order to display all the tabs when administering mailboxes.
