MS Project: Critical Path vs. Partially Complete Tasks

Is there a way to force MS Project (2003) to calculate the Critical Path from Remaining Work instead of Total Work? If I have 5 tasks ordered by precedence, and one in the middle is 50% complete, the final delivery date should not include time of the completed portion.

Similarly, is there a way to force all incomplete work to be automatically pushed to out to the future?

If not (likely), is there a product out there that does all of this effectively?

some keywords for search engines...
- critical path
- only outstanding work
- only incomplete work
- collapse completed work
- work in the future
