I am new to powershell.  
I need a powershell script that exports the homedirectory of various AD users in different OUS.  I already have a list of users.  Is it possibly to call a txt  file that has the users' AD samaccountname and then outputs the findings to a csv file that displays their Fullname and homedirectory.

If you have at least one 2008 R2 DC, then you can use MS' AD cmdlets without anything further.  Since "Fullname" is not an AD attribute, you have to choose which you want to use (possibly "Name", "DisplayName", etc.).
Import-Module ActiveDirectory
Get-Content users.txt | ForEach {Get-ADUser $_ -properties DisplayName,HomeDirectory | Select DisplayName,HomeDirectory | Export-CSV userinfo.csv -notype
