How can I migrate PCs to a domain without having to visit each workstation?

Is there a way to migrate NT4 and Win2k workstations to another domain without having to visit each workstation to join the new domain by hand?

Yes. You can use Netdom.exe, which comes with the Windows Resource Kits and the Support Tools (see SupportTools on the Windows XP CD). You can also write a simple WMI script to do the job, even remotely. Check out this example. My preference is the WMI script. It's more flexible for thinking outside the box.
