You might not be seeing this, but it is something to think about...

I needed (or chose to) create separate machine accounts for each dual  
booted OS.  One OS would change the machine account password, and the  
other OS would not be able to join the domain since it had the wrong  
password.  Giving each OS a separate machine name made life a lot nicer.
