Batch File or VBScripting Question

I wasn't sure which cat orgy this question should go under so I put it here. I have a command line that I would like to turn into a batch file or a script. Netdom is a tool that included in the WinXP Support Tools, and it's used to rename computers remotely. Ideally I would like to be prompted for the renamecomputer name, newname, and the usero. Here's the link that I found on how to use the tool: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;298593&sd=tech. And here's the command line that worked for me. Thanks for your help.

netdom renamecomputer gx110-image /newname:GX110-1387 /userd:OSR-NT\administrator /passwordd:* /usero:gx110-image\administrator /passwordo:* /reboot:30

Hi, it definitely can be done through VBScript.

This page gives you the code you need, you will have to modify it for your purposes (to display prompts instead of reading values from a text file) but that should be pretty easy...
