Active Directory Users

Anyone know of a way to create sort of like templates for AD users.  Example: I want to add certain groups, home drive, login script, info in notes in Telephone tab ... Is there a way to make some sort of batch job or template?  

Example: User 1 gets sec groups: A B C D
User 2 gets sec groups B C D E
3 gets C E G H

Thanks, ..

Have you tried just copying the user?

Like Lee suggested..

Copy the current user and create the template from it for example Template A, B, C the security groups will be automatically added to the "Template Users" then when you create a new user just copy the template you created.. Give the account a name and then you will have the correct security accounts in the account..
