Is there a way to use the Windows 2008 Server Task Scheduler to schedule once
a day tasks that only runs on weekdays, excluding weekends? I have a task
that I would like to run once a day, but only on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday, and Friday.

If the Win2008 Server task scheduler looks anything like its predecessors
then you can select your weekdays one by one when setting a weekly schedule.
I would be extremely surprised if this facility was no longer available.

the administratice tools for the GUI.
