How do I have my notebook login - Windows Server

I presently am trying to login to a win2003 Server from my laptop. I have defined myself as a use in AD as well as created a bat file in my user profile to map a drive. But how do I get my client to be prompted for a username and password when I boot up my client system if its attached to this LAN -- Thanks...

    Make the workstation join the domain you've created?

    How do I get my workstation to join the domain? Can you outline the steps ? Do I set up a script anywhere on my workstation to do this automatically? Thanks

    Do you have a domain admin? They should be able to do this for you.

    The exact steps depend on the operating system in use, and should be covered
    in the help files on that system.

    For Windows XP Professional, I would join a domain by right-clicking 'My
    Computer' and selecting properties.

    In the window that appears, I'd choose the 'Computer Name' tag, then click
    "Network ID" and follow the on-screen instructions.
