Well, you could use something like netserverenum from vbadmincode to list the machines on the domain: http://www.vbadmincode.btinternet.co.uk/code/netserverenum.zip

then now that you have the hostname, use the code here to get the ip address from the hostname:
http://www.mvps.org/vbnet/index.html?code/network/iplookup.htm

Should be pretty easy to put together at that point.

i gave it a shot and it works out great.
