Nice explanation on creating groups...

Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

The first thing you need to be aware of is that groups have nothing (very little anyway) to do with group policies. Groups are used to manage sets of users and assign assign security permissions to objects such as files, folders and printers.

To great a group go to Active direstory users and computers right click on a container (eg users) and select New.. Group. The most common form of group is the Golbal Security Group. Once a group has been created then you can go to the members tab and add users (or other groups) to the group.

If you then go to an object such as a folder, you can assign the group permissions to the object.

OUs on other otherhand cannot be used to assign permissions to objects but are used to with group policies.

To create a new OU, right click on the domain (or existing OU) and select New..organisational Unit
To put users and/pr computers into an OU drag and drop the user/computer accounts.

You can then create a group policy and link it to the OU.
