Hello, I am trying to add a PC with Fedora Core 7 on it to a domain but not sure exactly how to go about it in Linux OS. Is there a place where I can change it from workgroup to join the domain like its done in Windows under Computer properties?

Linux doesn't "join" the domain like Windows.  You need to configure Samba and it will be "included" in the domain in a manner similar to how Windows 9x computers are - there will be no management of it, but you can access network resources.

For more information on configuring Samba, you need to review http://us1.samba.org/samba/ and look under the "learn samba" section on the left.
