Configure a Customization Specification script to add userid to admin group in esx4i

I'm currently configuring some Customization Specifications in ESX4i. I have the CS configured but i would like it to automatically ask the the person using the script if they want to add a certain userid to the administrator group in the VM.

Is there a way to configure the custom spec to ask this question when it is used when deploying a template for a 2003 server?

No, but you really don't need it to. I'm not sure what specific settings you have set for the customization, but if you're automatically adding the VM to the domain, you can set Group Policy to take care of adding users to groups, such as local Admin group. You configure that with Restricted Groups:
