I have a couple of old DellXPS desktop computers that I would like to add to a domain.  When I go to mycomputer/properties/computername/change only the workgroup shows up.  The domain option is grayed out.  The desktop computer is using a NVidia network controller and it also uses Netware client.  

Our domain controllers are running Windows Server 2003 SP2.  Can I add these computer to the domain?  Do I need to do something in the Windows components?

Thanks.
