You can map a network drive on the domain without joining it.

Open Nautalis (Files), then clock "Connect to server" on the left menu.

Enter "smb://servernameorip/"

then a dialog will open asking for username/domain/password.

If you want to join the domain, it is not so simple I can type instructions here.  There are ALOT of how-tos for this exact thing out on the net.  Type "Join Fedora 22 to windows domain" in google and you will have hundreds of good articles.

If you also want to join an AD domain to authenticate Windows AD users, you can install something like PowerbrokerOpen and join your Fedora system to the domain.

There is no "native" way of joining Windows from linux.  You need one of those software I mentioned to join AD

You can install samba.  It's one of the standard packages.
yum install samba

@savone - mapping to a network drive works.
I am now waiting to see if there is a simple way to join the computer to the domain after I have installed Samba.

Have only tried to connect to a mapped drive.
Unsure if the rest of the suggestions work.
