Setting up a domain to be invisible to all but those who already know it's there

Is it possible to set up a domain to not broadcast its existence on a network, but still be able to be connected to by client computers who already know that the domain is there?  I'm using Windows 2003 to host the domain.

Im not sure If you can do that.  You could probally use Group Policy to Restrict Access to My Network Places, etc.. That way no one can view the network, to find out if its there

Neat, thanks.  I should have known that, but I didn't really think about it.  That's better than nothing at least.
