multiple INSERT

Can i make multiple inserts into a table using one statement.
the statement:
INSERT INTO table1 (UserName) VALUES (SELECT DISTINCT UserName FROM
table2)

Basically, i want to take out all the UserNames from table2 and insert
them into table1.
It doesnt work, why?
Thanks Wes

This one trips me up from time to time. Take out the word 'VALUES'.

Refer to syntax documented here:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/insert.html
