I also might add this.  I have software on some of my labs that will not
let the user make any changes to the computer.  If they change
backgrounds, settings, software, etc. then upon a reboot, the changes will
be gone.  I don't know if this would have any affect on the computers
joining the domain or not.  I will keep the domain name the same as what I
have now.

Answer: Why is putting a reply at the top of the message frowned upon?
