I want to have workstations to get added to an OU that I created by default when I add them to the domain. So that I do not have to go back and move them manually.

Check out the NetDom.exe tool from the Windows 2003 Server Admin toolkit.  It allows you to create computer account via the command line and place them into the listed OU or into the default Computers OU if none is specified.
