I need to populate a dropdownlist with all OU's in a specific domain.  Then when a user selects the OU, it will display another dropdownlist with the groups from that OU.  The user then can add or remove users from the selected group/groups.  Any code examples or pont me to the right direction where and how I can do this using VS 2008 as a web form?

this should get you started, however VS2008 questions are better in the appropriate section.
create a file like ListOUs.vbs and insert the following code:

Set objOU = GetObject("LDAP://ou=<Your OU Group>,dc=<your domain>,dc=com")
objOU.Filter = Array("organizationalUnit")
strList = "Select an Organizational Unit:"
For Each objChild In objOU
    strList = strList & vbCrLf & objChild.ou
Next
strSelect = InputBox(strList, "MyProgram")
