I just inherited a new domain in a new town.  I need to have my winxp machine on my domain but i need to be able to log off and when logging back on pick the new domain.  The new domain isn't a child domain in the forest yet...it is it's own seperate system.  I don't want to have to keep rebinding my laptop to each domain...any way to join multiple domains and have the ability to choose which one i want to log in to?

I thought it would search and find the domain on its own.  You could create a host file that identifies the other domain's DCs and then add the users as local administrators.

You need to set up trusts between the domains to get the drop downs. Administrative tools => AD domains and trusts. You need to set it up on both ends of the trust - ie the DCs in both domains.

Unfortunately you cannot have a PC on two separate domains that are not trusted by each other.  You could create a trust relationship between the two domains for now until you can join them permanently.  When you're ready, you can use the Active Directory Migration Tool....
