workstation ) and I want not to recreate this icons and groups.

I guess you have roaming profiles enabled. If you logon to the new domain your new profile is copied to the WS.
If your Icons etc. are only referenced locally, you can copy your profile. If you also want your registry to be saved you must be sure that there are no entries refering to the old domain.
best is to give it a try.
You can ask the admin of the domains if they use roaming profiles and if they would copy it for you.
Most of the settings can be copied by yourself.
Login to domain1. Copy the tree \winnt\profiles\yourusernam to a different location. Now login domain2 and copy it back. I doubt if you can copy the file ntuser.dat which holds your registry. If this is important the admin must copy it from server1 to server2 (if both are using roaming profiles.

If you have more questions concerning this, please leave me a comment first (before grading).

It's good for NT4 WS but for NT3.51 WS,  \winnt\profiles\yourusernam don't exist !

On NT 3.51 WS, the profiles are in \winnt\system32\config and the profile is for example 'user000'.
Copy old profile to new profile give a error.

You are right, I was with 4.0. Sorry for the answer :-))
But I think there is a userprofile editor in 3.51. this editor allows to copy userprofiles. Can this be used to copy between computers?
If there are no roaming profiles in 3.51 I wonder why you have a problem anyway.
If this doesn't help, please reject my answer.
