Have you ran into something like this before?
I am tring to join a new Acer Aspire 5680 laptop running Vista Ultimate to a
Windows 2000 domain for one of my customers. Should be a piece of cake,

the network adapter, but that is about it.
I have never had an issue adding a Win2K Pro or XP Pro PC to this same
Any advice is appreciated.
