HI mikainz & angus_young_acdc

Sorry, non of those links talks about adding computers, I have already managed the code for adding users.

I would appreciate a more specific , with relevant sample code answer.

I would imagine its a very similar process to adding a user.  Selecting the group (the workstations), and adding the name, location and other properties.  Something similar to the following:
            DirectoryEntry dirEntry = new DirectoryEntry("LDAP://");
            dirEntry.Properties["CompName"].Add("myCompName");
            dirEntry.Properties["UserName"].Add("myUserName");
            dirEntry.Properties["Password"].Add("myUsersPassword");
            dirEntry.CommitChanges();
            dirEntry.Close();
