Connecting a laptop to multiple domains

I have a laptop that is running Windows 2000 Advanced Server which I take to multiple locations. My problem is that it seems that I can only be a member of one domain at a time. What I am trying to accomplish is to be able to enter a particular network's information in once and have it so that when I log in I have all my networks listed in the domain option on the log in screen. It seems to me that this is a common thing and should be pretty easy. If anyone knows how to do this and could help me I would appreciate it.

Sorry but this is not how NT domain membership works.  A workstation (and even though you are using 2000 Server, you are using it as a workstation) can only be a member of one NT domain at a time.

A couple of thoughts that might be workarounds:

1) NetSwitcher (http://www.netswitcher.com) Version 3 permits quick changes from one network setup and domain setup to another.  It works on W2K without needing any reboots.  My only concern here is that it doesn't specifically support 2000 Server.

2) You can setup your portable server as a domain of it's own and then establish interdomain-trust between all of your "client" domains and it.

This will do everything you need and you can download a trial version.
It also comes with multi-domain manager for NT based systems.
