MAC Needs 2 Domains

I have a MAC on my (mostly PC) network that needs to get on another Domain.  Both Domains have a trust relationship but I am unfamiliar with how to add the credentials to a MAC.  The user has a login for each Domain (they are not identical).  Is there something that MAC's have that block inter-Domain traffic?  Or is there a particular way that MAC's use a "Credential Manager" type utility?  

I have both the name and the IP address of the server of the Domain but cannot seem to connect to a folder/share that I need to.  Any suggestions?

You can add a second domain server and thus a second domain or so it seems.  

You will need to access the Users Preference from the Preferences.  Clicking on "Login Options" followed by "Edit..." brings you to a list showing your current domain.  Clicking the "+" sign allows you to add a second server.

I have not added a second server but others seem to have.  Here is a link with more details:

Another option is to prepend the username with the second domain name:
New-Domain\username


Finally, if file sharing is all that is needed, why the domain join at all for the Mac?  Usually accessing network drives simply requires the full path and proper username credentials.  Again, the login might take the form of New-Domain\username
