I want to join a second domain on my Windows 2000 Pro machine.  The second domain has a two way trust with the domain my computer already belongs to.  How do I join the second domain without losing the first?  I want the ability to log into one or the other domain.

Assuming they have a trust setup you should be able to see the domain on the login screen.  You should have three lines a username/password/domain.  If you don't see the third line hit the options or advanced button and it will come up.  You should be able to select it.  You can't join two domains at least not that i know of...however as long as the trust exists and is setup correctly it should be visible from the login drop down....

Ok, I assumed they had a two way trust, but maybe it's a onw-way since I only see one domain in my login prompt
