    If you're asking for a way to change the default OU computer accounts are created in by default, then I don't know of a way to do that.  But, if you just want a method of creating computer accounts in another OU, then have a look at these links.

    There's a Tool to do what you ask on the Windows 2000 / 2003 Server CD called ReDirComp.exe which changes the default location for computer account creation.

    In addition to that, and if it's remotely interesting, there's also one for User Accounts called ReDirUsr.exe which does the same for User Accounts.
