nt workstation in multiple domains

That is possible if the two domains have trust relationships, but my
understanding from the question posed was that the workstation was probably a
laptop and moved between domains that had nothing to do with each other.  Ex:  I
have domains with three separate organizations that my workstation logs into.
Because the workstation can only join one domain, I can only get that domain and
domains that it trusts in the logon drop-down box.  Since the different domains
belong to different organizations (which don't even recognize that each other
exist), the result is that the workstation won't allow a login to the other two

Basically, your right, you can allow logon to multiple domains, but they must be
part of an enterprise of trusting domains.  Otherwise, your workstation couldn't
possible have access to the userlist to allow it to have a local workstation
user permission to allow local logon.
