I'm not sure what you mean by "ADS>Domain name >users>Domain admin > Members"...maybe you could explain a bit more.

In the active directory console below the domain name we have users OU in that there is a Domain admin in that members are machine names.

I dont know why your new computers are going in the Domain Admins OU, however  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324949/ explains how you can change the default OU for new objects and may cure your problem.
