Basically those tools grant permissions to an "Exchange Administrators" group 
to install/manage/etc everything related to Exchange server.  This allows a 
large company to have Exchange Admins that are NOT Domain or Enterprise admins.

For a small company this does nothing for you because you'll probably just log 
in as "Administrator" to install or manage the Exchange organization anyway.

I was curious about this myself (I didn't do it, either) so I run a search on 
Microsoft's site.  If you aren't heavily using the online version of Technet 
then you're really missing out:
