Hello,
I have an existing windows 2003 domain. Can anyone walk me thru creating a organizational unit and then moving users one by one to the approporate unit? I have roughly 50 users so it's not a big deal to do it manually.
Thank you.

Tony

Log onto the server as administrator.
Go to Start|Programs|Administrative Tools|Active Directory Users and Computers
Right-click the name of your domain in the left pane and go to New|Organizational Unit.
Enter the desired name and hit OK.
Click on the Users container (or wherever they are currently located) in the left pane
Right-click each user in the right pane, click Move, select your new OU, and hit OK.  You can select multiple users by holding down shift or ctrl while left-clicking.

you can move your users in one bulk hit with this command

dsquery user "OU=OUName, DC=Domain, DC=Local" | dsmove -newparent "OU=NewOU, DC=Domain, DC=Local"

With 2003 ADUC you can just drag'n'drop your users in the new OU. Under 2000 you had to use the move command, then browse, but D'n'D should be fine for 50 users...
