What error are you getting?

other ways to export? - only CSVDE and LDIFDE that I know of.

This is a simple example but should do it.  you'll need to be a domain admin.  csvde.exe should be located in windows\system32 directory of windows 2000 servers if you are having trouble finding it.

CSVDE -f users.csv -r "(&(objectClass=user))"
CSVDE -f computers.csv -r "(&(objectClass=computer))"

note that -f will export all fields for each object.
you can remove unwanted fields by importing into something like excel.

You can use LDIFDE as well but csvde gives you a csv file and makes the results easier to manipulate.
How to use LDIFDE:

wouldn't go around calling people "sir" in here.  I might be a madam. :)

before you run this, make sure you've got enough space for the comma separated value file exported (mine was about 90MB for the filtered command below).

complete list of everything in AD:
CSVDE -f full.csv

Filtered list of your active directory containing only user and computer objects. exports all fields for each object .
CSVDE -f filtered.csv -r "(|(objectClass=user)(objectClass=computer))"

-r denotes a filter is being used, actual filter is the LDAP query between " "
& (ampersand) denotes an AND-ing statement.
| (pipe) denotes an OR-ing statement.

If you want to filter it further so you are only pulling out particular OUs and/or particular fields, this is a link that has a description of the syntax available for csvde http://www.ss64.com/nt/csvde.html
