I have an excel/comma delimited file that contains a list of usernames. Is there a way to use that list and get the First and Last Name of the users so that they can be imported into excel? This is on Windows 2000 Active Directory by the way.

open excel - file>open - change the "files of type" to text files and open the csv file
now you have to configure the "text import wizard" and when you finish you mast save the result again as an excel file.

Open Active Directory for Users and Computers.  Click on the Container that has the users defined.  Click on View->Choose Columns and select User Logon Name, First Name, and Last Name.  Right-click the container and choose Export List.  Choose tab delimited format.   You can use the Excel text import wizard to import this file, just be sure to choose tab as the delimiter.
