you can only connect to one domain at a time.  you may want to
look into establishing a 'trust relationship' between the two domains.
that will allow users from domain -f- to freely (according to their
permissions of course) roam about domain -s- and vice versa
w/out separate logons.  i do not know if it solves the
logon/authentication problem of which domain to log into.  i am
also unclear if samba supports trust relationships.

you could also force the user to know which domain they are in
and have them specify at the logon screen.  (m/s provides a
utility to clear the last logged in user's info, search for "power
toys" at the ms web site, i think its actually under w95.)

good luck,
