    I am taking Networking at my local technical school, and my instructor has issued me a challenge. (not a test or anything.) He said that last semester, a student joined a WIN7 machine to a WIN NT 4.0 domain. So..I have researched it.....I discovered one post that discussed how it was possible on the win 7 beta version. However i do not have that version. Does anybody out there have any idea how one might do this? Can I use Samba? Are there any registry tricks I can try.. from what i can tell there are Trust issues between the two operating systems that are the real problem. Anybody?
    Best Regards,
    K.R.

    This what we do to make them join samba domains correctly, don't know if it will help you or not.
    Start-run-regedit
    My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE_SYSTEM\current control set\services\net logon\parameters
    Change “signsecurechannel” and “requiresignorseal” from value of 1 to 0

    Take this with a grain of salt, messing w/ the registry can cause your pc to not boot.
