I will assume that you are running Windows 2000 Native mode or later, so your active directory will support Global group nesting.

The code is basically identical to adding a user to a group.  Just the ADsPath of the "member" happens to point to another global group:

Set grp = GetObject("LDAP://CN=Domain Admins, CN=Users, DC=Fabrikam, DC=com")
grp.Add "LDAP://CN=SomeOtherGlobalGroup, OU=Sales,DC=Fabrikam,DC=com"
