How do I administer domain users in Windows 2000?

A. Windows 2000 has a whole new look for its administration tools with Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-ins, and for the administration of domain users the Domain Management MMC snap-in is used. This is selected from the Administrative Tools folder (Start - Programs - Administrative Tools - Directory Management)

Once started expand the domain and Users branch to see the users.
