We have several distribution groups set up, and I've been asked to add a page to our Sharepoint Site that contains lists of the distribution groups and lists all of the members.  Is there a way I can do this dynamically so that I dont have to edit the page each time a new user is added or someone's role changes?

Hi!
If you are using Server Edition, you can try this:

UserProfileManager profileManager = new UserProfileManager ();
MemberGroupManager groups = manager.GetMemberGroups();
foreach (MemberGroup group in groups)
{
     foreach (string user in group)
     {
      ///display user
     }
}

I'm sorry but I'm not sure where I would put the code that you have supplied.  Is this considered a Server Side Script, and if so does this article apply?
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-designer-help/add-a-server-side-script-as-a-data-source-HA010119472.aspx

Right now, we are using a List to keep our group membership info, which is basically a big text box.

We are using Sharepoint Services 3.0 on Windows 2008 Standard.

Thanks

Hi!
This is a server side code and you can put in a custom webpart or directly in page markup (you should be familar with ASP.Net development for that). But any way this code will not work in WSS 3.0 (it is only for MOSS 2007 or SharePoint Server 2010).
If you have membership info in a custom list (not AD groups) you can try to use standard listview or dataview webpart or create a custom webpart.
