Also,  do NOT try to go from a workgroup to a domain of the same name.
It  will  quite  surely  fail. If you need to go from WG "a" to domain
"a",  first change WG from "a" to "b", reboot, then try to join domain
"a".  If  it  fails,  try  executing a "net use * /d" on the Win2k box
before joining the domain to disconnect all drives, printers, and IPC$

Best regards,
