Try looking at the code for "ICTNUT's My Little Server Monitor" on here mate, we have a page setup for all our server, printers, switches, access points etc. We can easily see whats online.

If they are in differnt OU's create a new query (go to the "saved queries" folder) instaed of using the Search. You then get a list you can export to a text file.
You can then open the list in excel. Using Excel formula's you can create commmand for each PC (I use
). copy and paste your formula into a text file and then rename it a .bat file.
ping PCNAME -w 5 >> h:\pingres\pingres.txt
I run this when my updates are runing to see which PC's are on, the results are then appended to a file for me to check when I get in.

You can ping via hostname, but only as long as DNS is up to date and they are online.
