Can't add users! - Windows Server

Maybe I'm being really dumb, but there is no "Users" option where it should be, after a new install. I guess I went wrong somewhere in the install - can anyone tell me where? Thanks.....

    You want to add users to local computer or domain Active Directory?

    If local computer, first log on locally with a user as administrator:

    right click on "My Computer", click "Manage", then expand "Local Users and
    Groups", right click "Users", choose "New User", then follow the wizard.

    If domain, first log as administrator:
    Install adminpak.msi (start - run - adminpak.msi), then open start - control
    panel - administrative tools - Active Directory Users and Computers, then
    you could add users in specific location (OU,etc).

    P.S. You cannot add local users and groups to Domain Controller.

    And you are looking for? I'm sorry, but i do not know what "Users" option
    you mean, because there might be more than one.

    What are you trying to do?

    Nuo, thanks for posting a reply so quickly. That did it -
    as I suspected I WAS being really dumb, and got confused
    with the differences with W2000.

    Cheers.

    Hi Kristofer, I had a reply already which made me realise
    I was just being pretty darn stupid. I was trying to do
    this install in a rush under pressure, and wasn't familiar
    with the interface.
    Thanks for your reply.
