In my opinion VBScript should be the most comptabile for the NT4 and 2000. You can use powershell for 2003 and 2008. If you have not  programmed before powershell will be a huge learning curve. You can find lot of vbscript example if you google Scripting guy on microsoft web site and there are tons of other vbscript examples available on the web.
