Since you posted in Windows 2003 I'm hoping you have windows 2003 servers as well?

Access one of them
Start > Administrative Tools > AD domains and Trusts > right click your domain name > Properties

in this box it will tell you the functional level of the domain, if it's 2003/2000 you don't have any NT servers that are acting as controllers. If it does say something that indicates NT4 the above could still be the case but the level hasn't been raised.

I have almost no NT4 experience so I really don't know how to check from the server itself, but the above might give you an idea till Leew can confirm or deny my advice.

I think also the only way to see that domain and computer is to check in Microsoft Windows Network
