You can add roles using sp_addrolemember. See http://sqlserverplanet.com/security/add-user-to-role

And how do you specify the domain where the user is coming from given that when I add the user domain\\user I get the following error:  

I would like to add the following user:

Mycompanydomain\myuser as opposed to just myuser.

This is not working, especially that I am passing the query through my C# code to get this work.  Please help me find a solution so I can put this to rest.  I need the following written in C#

SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("Create LOGIN " + usertobeadded + " USE " + databasename + " " +"CREATE USER " + usertobeadded + " FOR LOGIN " + usertobeadded " GO", conn);

I keep on getting with the '\' sign or the ';' sign.  What do I do?

My C# is a little rusty, but I'll try. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms187750.aspx for more information. I wanted to get the information to you quickly. If below doesn't work, I'll fire up my C# environment and make sure I get the syntax right.

//Create New User
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("CREATE USER " + NameForSQL + " FOR LOGIN [" + Domain + "\" + User + "]", conn);

//Add Role
SqlCommand2 cmd = new SqlCommand("EXEC sp_addrolemember '" + Role + "', '" + NameForSQL + "'", conn);

I'm not a C# developer - I code mainly in Java - but I'm guessing it might be an issue with escaping the backslash character.
