More information please?

I'm assuming you wish to know how to copy a user in Windows 2003 Server's Active Directory Users And Computers?

Specifically, it can't be done.  What they expect you to do is use the Active Directory Group Policy in order to apply common settings across groups of users at once.  

Thus, you'd create an Organizational Unit (or group) with the settings you want for multiple users, and simply create the user in that OU.  (Or add the user to the group with those settings).

What all come with when we copy the user
If you _do_ copy a user (which I thought was only in the older versions), it makes a duplicate of the user settings.  Specifically, that's the profile path (sometimes), the logon script used, the groups that user is a member of, and similar.

It doesn't contain the same information on full profiles and exchange user settings.
