Joining a Vista Laptop with domain

Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I have a laptop I am trying to join to a Windows Server 2003 domain.  I ran nslookup domain.com and received a good IP for the dns server.  My DC has DNS and DHCP configured on it.  I succesfully joined the domain with another pc on my network that is running XP SP3.  I have TCP/IP configured with the proper DNS IP address.  FOr the life of me I can't figure out what I'm missing.  Help?
