Registry hack in Win2k and XP that changes domains

What is the registry hack for a system running Win2k and XP that changes the domain, but keeps the same profile with out coping files from one profile to the other?

The domain name is stored in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesTCPIPParametersDomain, but if you are part of a domain it's not a good idea to change this by simply hacking the machine directly, since domain information is also stored on the domain controller.
