I wanted to make a user / password system that let users choose a subdomain for their account.  Does anybody know where they are any tutorials on this?

You mean choose a domain, since there is no such thing as a subdomain.

No, just a domain.  The term "subdomain" is just kind of confusing.  Any Fully Qualified Domain Name [FQDN] is registered with a Registrar and thereafter known as an FQDN domain.  Domains can be hosted and delegated [which is common and perhaps close to the idea of a subdomain, but still, it's a domain].

So, if a user has more than one domain, you want some kind of login or auth that asks for simply domainname which that user can type over in a dialogue box, either a form on some login website or a popup.  I think every ISP or other that hosts such sites has a login form that asks for the domainname.  You could simply go to such a site and view the source, or save the source, and see how they do it.

If you mean the Windows login prompt, that is a Windows study on how to allow login choices with multiple domains.  Microsoft must have some documentation on that somewhere, but i've no idea where it is.  We do, in fact, have multiple domains, yet Windows Server is not geared toward easily telling one how to add entries to the domain list drop down.

Are you hosting websites?

That's a hostname field.

<hostname>.<domainname>.<type>

All you have to do is when at that site view the page source.  It's in javascript and will give you a good idea of how it's done.
