in your unattend.txt use:

   UserExecute = drive:\your\path\batch.bat


in batch.bat use:

   addusers /c file

see addusers for a description how to specify your user in file (addusers /d  gives you an example ;-)

Create a $oem$ folder in you I386 (from where you start setup).
Create a Cmdlines.txt file with the following section:
[commands]
".\net user <UserName> (Password> /add"
".\net group Admministrators <UserName> /add"
Copy of the Net.exe in the $oem$ folder.
In Unattend.txt file, make sure the Oempreinstall value is set to Yes.
Run an unattended setup.
