How do I query a list of authors / users in Wordpress 3.0.1?

I'd upgrade but my theme doesn't support WP 3.2.1

Frankly, you should upgrade the theme to support WP 3.2. Particularly if you're trying to use an object (WP_User_Query) that was introduced in a later version of WordPress (it doesn't exist in 3.0.1!). – EAMann Aug 26 '11 at 21:32

You can use WP_User_Query class with 3.1 and higher, there was WP_User_Search class which is deprecated since 3.1, also see this article from Steve Taylor you may find it helpful - http://sltaylor.co.uk/blog/get-wordpress-users-by-role/
