I use the tools that came with the download... I velieve 
http://geology.usgs.gov/tools/metadata/ lists them all...

This includes MP and TKME (tickle me? Where is Elmo when you need it?)

However I am not familiar with S/R system. Can you provide a link? What 
is the tool for?

If these metada tools made their way into FGS and MS4W perhaps people 
would be more willing to include metadata with their geographic data 
instead of leaving me guesing who, what when where and why the data was 
gathered and especialy HOW, standards and acuracy.... less time on the 
phone asking questions to those that SHOULD HAVE INCLUDED METADATA...

Check out Metadata Bob at 
http://www.csc.noaa.gov/metadata/text/Bob_poster.pdf and go sailing with 
him at http://www.csc.noaa.gov/metadata/text/Bob_guide.pdf

Cheers to the inclusion of metadata tools with GIS packages, now if 
someone just had the good sense to combine them (or let me know who has 
alreayd done so)
