Using a script to created AD account in Window server 2008

Hello Everyone,

I need to setup a non IT user to create new accounts in a windows 2008 domain.  They will need to create two accounts for each user.  I am looking to streamline this as much as posslbie.  Does anyone know of a script that will prompt you to enter a username, password, and then create the user?

Thanks,

Bill
