I think you mean, how do you set up the Windows 2000 machine to log on to the domain? Well, talk to your sysadmin and he should be able to do the job for you--in fact, already SHOULD have done the job for you. If he isn't available, and you know the username and password of an account with Domain Administrator rights, you can get onto the domain by right-clicking My Computer and selecting Properties, then clicking the Computer Name (or Network Identification--forget which on Win2K). You then simply press Change... next to "To rename this computer..." and type your domain name into the relevant field.

You DO NOT need administrator group membership to join a W2K Professional workstation to an NT DOMAIN.  You do, however, need the "Add Workstation to Domain" user right on your DOMAIN ACCOUNT that you use to join the workstation to the domain.  Normal user accounts DO NOT have this by default but it is something that the admin can easily rectify.

Note that this user right is NOT needed to join Win9x clients to the domain, only NT4, W2K, and XP Pro workstations need this right to join.
