I have a SBS2008/2011 domains
Can I configure clients to login to multiple domains (though not at the same time). I need the ability to select the domain I will connect to.

Can you please send a tech note or advise on how I would do this.
Many thanks!

You can't.  If I understand what you want - the menu on the login screen to show both domains so you can pick one - you can't.  That menu is created from a list of trusted domains with the computer joined to one domain.  With SBS, one of the restrictions is that you cannot setup trusts between domains.
