In this tutorial we will do a basic setup of a User and a Groups. This entails the creation of Organizational Units and the creation of sub Organizational Units in order to keep things organized. We will create a domain user and then create a domain group.
Before this starts you may wonder what is an Active Directory in which case I will quote Wikipedia and say:
“Active Directory serves as a central location for network administration and security. It is responsible for authenticating and authorizing all users and computers within a network of Windows domain type, assigning and enforcing security policies for all computers in a network and installing or updating software on network computers. For example, when a userlogs into a computer that is part of a Windows domain, it is Active Directory that verifies his or her password and specifies whether he or she is a system administrator or normal user”. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Active_Directory

Having said that let us proceed with the tutorial.
