User Import question

I am having some problems figuring out how to import users in 2000.  We had some .csv files and batch files that we used to use for NT4, but with the active directory they do not work.

All I need is username, logon name, password, group assignment and home directory.  I have alist of a few hundred generic user names in excel with this information on it.  

Is there an easy way to do this?

Thanks
Enoch

enoch, you really haven't provided much information on the server version or the domain setup, but I'll try and help as much as possible.

To clone accounts from a trusted Windows NT domain to a native-mode Windows 2000 domain that was upgraded from a Windows NT PDC, you must re-create the DCs? trusts with other Windows NT source domains before using ADMT to migrate user accounts. Windows 2000 upgraded DCs have downlevel trusts with other Windows NT domains; downlevel trusts don?t support SIDHistory. Use the DC?s Active Directory Domains and Trusts tool to delete and re-create the trusts with other Windows NT domains before running ADMT. See MSKB article Q256250, ClonePrincipal and ADMT Require Uplevel Trust to Migrate Objects Between Windows 2000 Domains.

Microsoft offers an 11-chapter Domain Migration Cookbook that you can download from:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/library/planning/activedirectory/cookbook.asp.

The Cookbook uses ADMT for domain migration and restructuring.

Interforest domain migration isn?t limited to cloning Windows NT directory objects. You also can move AD objects between trees in two AD forests, but the move is subject to incomplete object migration if the schemas of the forests differ. Intraforest migration permits you to move objects between domains in the same forest of domain trees. It?s the latter capability that lets you restructure multiple Windows NT domains you upgrade in place, assuming you adopted the standard practice of upgrading all domains into a single forest.
