Domain name has changed in a very subtle way.

We have a site with two servers, ~4 workstations, ~15 TS terminals. I upgraded a win98 workstation to win2k and added it to domain VALORTHO. I log in as admin and can see this under network properties. At the login screen, I get two options for domain 1 - Local, and 2. VALORHTO <- spelled wrong. I can login as admin, but users get "Account has been disabled." message. I cannot find a VALORHTO domain anywhere. The 'upgrade' was actually a format, then install of win2k.

Any ideas?
