Please note that since 9.0, Mandrake Linux allows you to set this up
during installation (in expert mode in 9.0, in 9.1 use the 'advanced'
button in the screen where you set the root password).

On your first bootup you should be able to log in with a domain account.

There may be small complications if you have a Windows 2000 domain, NT
domain will work with no problems.
