By network domain you mean? Active directory or web site? And what are you exactly wanting this new Redhat box to do?

Active directory. I want to be able to browse out to our network and see what is on it. Like network places allow you to do. I did not know if this was possible or not. I want to be able to  join my Fedora to my workplace domain.

Say your AD domainname is "YourDomain"  <=== domain name may vary

Login Fedora Core 2 (Gnome), double click on "Computer", choose menu "File --> Open Location" and
type "smb://YourDomain/" in the location bar.

Or you can use LinNeighborhood (which can be found on http://freshmeat.net and is pretty self explanitory)
or the command line smbclient (type "rpm -qa | grep -i samba" to check if Samba is installed or not)
# smbclient -L MyDomain
# mkdir /tmp/MyDomain/share; smbmount //MyDomain/share tmp/MyDomain/share
