Working in a Windows Domain


I've been configuring a Dell Inspiron 8000 with Fedora Core 1 to use for administrative tasks on our network. We'll be integrating a Linux Intranet server shortly, and I want to have this laptop up and running by then.

So I really have two major issues right now:

I am having trouble interacting effectively with our domain. I have successfully added the machine to the Domain (this is a windows 2000 domain, incidentally). I can (with some effort) browse the three other machines in my subnet (CISCO VLAN), and access shares on those machines. I have to log in to each machine individually, though, and this is the beginnning of my issue.

I want to know if it is possible to log in to the domain and avoid having to log in to each machine.

The other part of the problem is that OUTSIDE my subnet, I can see the machines in the domain while browsing in "Network Servers", but when attempting to browse them, I get a message that says:

The action associated with "smb://<computer name>" is invalid

The popup has two buttons, "cancel" or "associate action" neither of which do anything. All I can do is close the pop up message.

I am able to ping across subnets and am able to access the internet through the network with no issues.

Any thoughts / help will be appreciated....
