Can a user have more than one domain account on one PC?

I have a user who moves from site to site within our company. The two different sites use AD but have two separate domains (not linked at all). Is it possible to have two individual user accounts on this user's PC, so he can log in to one domain at one site, and then log in with a different user account on the other domain? I cannot find any information about having more than one AD domain and a local domain (i.e. local PC) listed in the network login box.

For traveling users with very specific requirements like those, I'm a big fan of Multi Network Manager, a product from Globesoft. It not only allows you to set up different IP addresses (and the associated gateway & subnet mask information), it also allows you to specify different domains, network shares, printers, etc. I found it very useful and easy for the end user.
