here's how to do it with a Novell Network

You would probably have to use Samba on the Linux box to give you a WinNT style file server instead of the Netware file server used in this example.

you can go to my website at www.linuxhelp.co.za and follow the networking link there, it will show you how to setup SAMBA on a RedHat 6.x machine ( for 7.x, just remember that samba files now are in /etc/samba and not just /etc as with redhat6.x)

After you have SAMBA started, you should be able to just configure your bootroms to log onto a NT domain as Bruce_R said.
