Just in case you missed it, Brian Wren recently posted a cool example on how to programmatically create a whole list of groups in Operations Manager 2007.  If this is something you've wanted to do but didn't know how then you'll definitely want to check out post:

Well, it looks from my last post that I took about a eight month hiatus from the blog.  Fortunately, I've been doing a bunch of OpsMgr in that time, so I have a bunch of content to get out here.  Just a matter of taking the time to write it up.

The one I'll go with first is programmatically creating groups.  Now creating a single group is pretty easy in the Operations Console, so creating a single one from a command line isn't going to get anyone excited.  What is exciting though is if you have a bunch of groups to create - especially if several of these are subgroups.

I'll leave you to figure out the complexity of providing a list of groups - maybe reading from a text file or something.  That's just straight PowerShell work.  What I will give you though is the code to create a new group.  You should be able to use this base code to do whatever complex and repetitive group creation that you might need.
