Automate Disk Properties

Hello all,

We are running Windows 2003 Servers and XP Professional Desktops.  We also
have several 2000 Servers.  I have 2003 Administrative Tools running on my
desktop....not that it helps me much.  I've been looking into Perl, but the
customization of how to make it work for this site perplexes me.  I really
need to be led by the hand.....classes are out of the question.  I've read
that WMI may also work.

Is there possibly a program which will go out out and grab this data perhaps?

I'm a scripting virgin and have been asked to create a weekly report that
lists the following:

1 - Server Name
2 - Drive Letter
3 - Total Disc size of each partition (C,D,E,F etc)
4 - Used GB Space
4 - Used %
4 - Free GB Space
4 - Free %

This is easily updated in an EXCEL spreadsheet manually, but I need to automate this some kind of way.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in anticipation of your help,
