The end user computers can only connect to one domain.  You will have to configure trusts between domains

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Yes, the best way to do this would be to setup trusts.  They would not necessarily need to login to the other domains, but as long as they are added as a two way trust then you could add in the groups from the other domains to the shares on your domain and vice versa.  The infrastructure manager role takes care of cross site group replication, and knowledge, etc.

However, when interactive logons is enabled in the default domain group policy, the users will have the option to login to the other domains.
