Changing User Logon Accounts in Active Directory 2k3 Env

I have been tasked with changing AD user logon accounts.  Currently our users names are using the following convention: Example......employee John Doe would have an AD user logon account of jxd1 (just using initials).  IT policy now mandates that we change the user logon to lastname.fi(rst) 2 initials of first name (example, doe.jo).  We have well over a hundred users and would be dreadful if this had to be done manually.  Anything else I should look out for when making a change like this.  Any help would be appreciated.  

Oh&..one more question.  Will the user loose their local profile settings?  I would think not but asking the question any way.

Thanks again!
