    Help! I mistakenly removed a user machine (Win 2K pro) from the domain (Win 2K Server) and put in in a workgroup. Now I can't logon to the local machine! Help!

    How do I put it back in the domain -- how do I even logon?

    Any help Greatly Appreciated!

    After depressing Alt+Ctrl+Del the Logon menu should have a drop-down for Domain. Click it and you should see the old Domain name.

    If you don't have the drop-down box to select the old domain from, you will have to log onto the computer using the local administrator account and re-join the computer to the domain with a account that has the permissions to do so.
