Also, if any of the newer windows client replacements are mature enough 
to actually use (and have decent documentation), please point me in that 
direction.  BBWin development seems to have completely stalled, and last 
time I went looking for a replacement, none of the other projects I 
found were even ready for alpha, much less production.

I have a lot of Windows clients in BBWin local mode, but I am doing my 
central mode experimentation on Server 2008 R2, which is only available 
in a 64-bit flavor.
