Windows can't do this natively.  Your PC cannot be a member of two domains at the same time.  UNLESS you use a third party application like NetSwitcher from www.netswitcher.com
You shouldn't want to do that.  Every time you logged in you would get a different profile with different desktops and different my documents and different favorites, mail settings, etc.  One computer, one user, one profile.

Use one profile and map network resources using a batfiles or whatever.  You can access multiple domains and workgroups from the same profile reguardless of what domain that profile may belong to.
