The machine needs to be XP Professional

Make sure it's primary DNS server assigned to the network card is the Domain Controller

Right click on My Computer > Properties > Computer Name > Change > select Domain > type the domain name to join

If you have trouble make sure there are no connections to the server where you've authenticated as a non-administrative user. IE mapped drives or printers. If you have, log off and log in as a different user or disconnect everything > log off > log back on and try again.

Also, if you continue to have trouble or it's not finding the domain you can go to your local aread network properties > TCP/IP > Properties > Advanced > DNS > select append these domain suffixes in order > add your domain.local to that list where "domain.local" is your internal domain name.
