In the Windows 2000 RESOURCE KIT there is a utility called NETDOM.  This is a command line utility that can help you manage just about all aspects of NT DOMAIN membership.  I think it's also on the W2K PRO CDROM somewhere.

It need workstation name to be specified. Is it possible to autmatically the hostname and join it to domain. In that case the script can be deployed thru SMS.
