I need to configure a laptop computer running windows 2000 to log onto a domain that is on a windows 2000  server and i need some step by step directions.  I know this is an easy thing, just have not done it in a long time and I cannot remember how to do it. Thanks!

OK, I'll assume your windows 2000 server is working correctly and you have an account setup. Also I'll assume your IP address and Subnet masks are configured correctly. If this is not the case let me know.

So we need to change your client 2000 machine from its current default workgroup to the domain. To do this go to start, control panel, click the system icon, then select the computer name tab. WHere it says "to change this computer to a domain/workgroup" click the change icon to the right.

Change it from a workgroup to a domain and put in your domain name. Click ok and come out of that. It'll prompt for a reboot.

And make sure your client machine has the correct DNS address for your internal DNS server otherwise it wont be able to find the server.

Let me know how you get on.
