Good news, this is actually not that difficult.  I use win2k so the buttons 
might be in a slightly different location but the process is the same.  
Essentially you need to right click on my computer and select properties, 
click on the Network Identification tab, click on the Network ID button to 
join a domain, then follow the instruction for joining.  You'll have to 
enter the name of the computer, as well as your name, password, and domain, 
other than that it should be a snap.  (you'll have to reboot when you're 
done, but no worries, it will tell you to do so.)  As a minor point, there 
is a wierd error that exists, if you are using NTLMv2 and have netbios 
disabled on the server this will not work, either lower your security or 
turn on netbios and you'll be fine (if you don't know what that is, you 
probably don't have to worry about it).
