NETDOM.EXE should be able to do that, it is in the NT 4 Server Resource Kit supplement.

Here's a batch script that should do the trick; should be running on any machine in the domain:
@echo off
setlocal
:: *** The number of the first useless lines of the 'net group "domain users" /domain' command output:
set NetFirst=4
:: *** The last line of the 'net group "domain users" /domain' command output:
set NetLast=The command completed successfully
:: *** In an NT4 domain, the domain computers are in the Domain Users group; 
:: *** in an AD domain, they're in the "Domain Computers" group:
set MachineGroup=Domain Computers
if "%UserDNSDomain%"=="" set MachineGroup=Domain Users

echo Computeraccounts in %Userdomain%:
for /f "skip=%NetFirst% delims=" %%a in ('net group "%MachineGroup%" /domain') do (
 set Line=%%a
 call :process
)
goto :eof

:process
:: *** Get the account names, configured in three columns:
set Account1=%Line:~0,25%
set Account2=%Line:~25,25%
set Account3=%Line:~50,25%
:: *** Avoid processing the "The command completed successfully" line
if /i "%Account1%"=="%NetLast:~0,25%" goto :eof
:: *** Remove spaces
if not "%Account1%"=="" set Account1=%Account1: =%
if not "%Account2%"=="" set Account2=%Account2: =%
if not "%Account3%"=="" set Account3=%Account3: =%
:: *** Write all accounts containing a "$":
if "%Account1%"=="" goto :eof
if not "%Account1%"=="%Account1:$=%" echo %Account1%
if "%Account2%"=="" goto :eof
if not "%Account2%"=="%Account2:$=%" echo %Account2%
if "%Account3%"=="" goto :eof
if not "%Account3%"=="%Account3:$=%" echo %Account3%
goto :eof

The script below will simply write the computer name of all computers in the domain to file C:\All_Domain_Computers.txt.

Daz.

'# Lists all computers in the Domain

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
strDomain = "YOUR-DOMAIN"
strOutputFile = "C:\All_Domain_Computers.txt"
Set ts = fso.OpenTextFile(strOutputFile, 2, True)  '# Overwrite and create if not exist

Set oDomain = GetObject("WinNT://" & strDomain)
oDomain.filter = Array("Computer")
For Each oComputer In oDomain
    ts.WriteLine oComputer.Name
Next
ts.Close

MsgBox "Done!"
