I am looking for a script that will list orphan user & roles and a script that will delete all orphan users who do not have sysadmin role. This needs to work with SQL Server 2000 & 2005.

All of these instructions should be done as a database admin, with the restored database selected.
This will lists the orphaned users:
EXEC sp_change_users_login 'Report'
If you already have a login id and password for this user, fix it by doing:
EXEC sp_change_users_login 'Auto_Fix', 'user'
If you want to create a new login id and password for this user, fix it by doing:
EXEC sp_change_users_login 'Auto_Fix', 'user', 'login', 'password'
