A single computer can only belong to one domain at a given time. If you need to access resources in multiple domains, you can map network drives or browse using your credentials in the other domain. If you need to switch back and forth between multiple domain memberships frequently, you can use a third-party utility like Globesoft's MultiNetwork Manager to automate the process.
