Import users from CSV file to windows 2003 server

Is there any quick way (without using a complex program such as UserManagemeNT) to create about 1000 user accounts on an windows 2000 server.  The server is set up as follows:

Servername : server1
   Org. Unit: Students
      Sub Org. Yr2004

I have a CSV file with the students forename, surname, desc, username, and all I need to do is create the accounts into the students\Yr2004 OU.

Any Help is really appreciated.

there is no "quick way",, i use UserManagemeNT and it is pretty simple and straight forward,,, and probably the easiest way... Your only other option is to script it,,, which will be MUCH more complex than using a third party tool like UserManagment.
