this is no fun when you're installing a large number of machines.

I used to use ghost to handle this - but it doesn't work after 3.0.1.

Once could probably use sysprep to do the domain join but that has the
serious drawback (for me) of requiring either a config floppy for each
machine or a random machine name.
