Joining a Windows XP/2000 Domain Network

This section describes how to add your computer to a Windows XP or Windows 2000 domain-type network. If you’re lucky, your network administrator will take care of this for you. Alternately, she or he may give you custom-tailored instructions for your network. By all means, use those instructions rather than the generic plan in this section.

Most Windows XP Professional installations will work “out of the box” without the need to install or configure any network components. If your network uses Novell servers, though, you’ll need to add either the Microsoft Client for Novell Networks, or the Novell Networks Client software—and unfortunately, only your network administrator can tell you which is appropriate for your organization. Installing additional network components is described earlier in this chapter under “Adding Network Clients, Services, and Protocols.”
