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!

You can export the usernames into csv do funky stuff with the excel sheet and reimport them.
Look up CSVDE
