one PC 2 servers/networks

Situation
Company A  wants a receptionist
Company B wants a receptionist
They are going to share the duty between Companies

Both Companies have thier own network, server etc
Both use SBS servers

How would I set up the receptionist PC to connect to both server/networks so they will be able to access thier files as a standard client would?

you are stuck due to the limitations of SBS: no trusts

SBS is designed as a single business system and will not allow anything like what you are asking, plus the basic rule of Domains is that thea computer may only be a part of one domain

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=295765
the same applies for 2003 except its 75 users

you may be able to setup a share on a server which you can share out to the roaming computer

I am going to take a closer look at this for a few days before awarding the points. lol, i just have a hard time placing my mind around cant. I have had PCs set up to log onto different domains but that was different server/systems/military. I hope I can find a work around for this.

OK i have it working but i know there is a better way to do this somehow.
Pc already had 2 NIC cards and the cables were already there.
Partitioned the PC so you can select which OS to run when you start it.
OS was win xp pro but each was set up to run through one nic to one domaine (each nic was given a specific domaine per cable while the other was disabled per which company they selected)).
On start up they would chose Company A or Company B then log in on that domaine.
This took almost no time to do partiontion copied then did the set up on each partioned OS

I am hoping someone can help me figureout how to do this just logging in and out without having to reboot the PC.

Im missing something somewhere to allow me to just chose domain at login.

Anyone able to throw me a bone?

thats the common setup for people who really have to have two separate domains used...dual booting with two OS's

i can get you around all the TCPIP config and that fun easy enough, but the simple rule of a machine (or single operating system) can only be member of one domain stands
