SharePoint - Way to limit the "People" search?

Greetings!

I'm curious if anyone has any knowledge on how to limit the amount of people that show up when you search.  For instance, If I'm trying to add someone to a group, SharePoint will search through the entire list of users on the current domain.  But what if my domain is split across three cities (Detroit, Atlanta, Vegas), and I only want to get the users that are in Atlanta.

Is there a way to disregard users from the search lists who are not in the current city, but are on the same domain that all three cities share?  Am I making my question clear enough?  If not, I can post screenshots.

Thank you.

Actually, it turns out that there is a command to do just what I wanted!

stsadm -o setsiteuseraccountdirectorypath

I must be the worst googler in the history of googlers!

If only there was a way to set more than one OU for stsadm -o setsiteuseraccountdirectorypath.  I have four user OUs that I want to use, out of eight.

Unfortunately, adding extra properties to the user accounts is not something that I'll be able to do.

What about if you use the Peoplepicker-serviceaccountdirectorypaths property?
