JSI Tip 5526. When you try to join a domain using a Windows 2000 client, the <b>Workgroup</b> and <b>Domain</b> boxes are unavailable?

When you right-click the My Computer icon on your desktop, press Properties, select the Network Identification tab, and press Properties, both the Domain and Workgroup boxes are unavailable?

3. Press the Install button.

4. Select Client and press the Add button.
