adding a workstation throught the windows "join a domain" gui does some 
configuration change on the host computer. Modifying is not enough, in 
any case you'll have to do a few thing on the windows box. However there 
a few command line tools available from MS for joining a domain, so you 
can write a small script to add the boxes.
