There is no problem with domains sharing the same network. Some reasons for multiple subnets:
Limit broadcasts.
Separated by router.
Ran out of Ip addresses.
Security.
On large networks it can be useful to separate the network but this is a physical not a domain need.

Yep this is very possible. It's just like if you had two subnets. You still have to create the trusts between the domain.

Hello.

NT's domain stracture has nothing to do with
IP.

You can have as much domains as you want in the
same lan/wan.
The only issue for you is managment.
Multiply domains enviroment has its pros and cons.
As a finger rule - the less domains the better.
It is also simpler to upgrate to win2000 domains when you have
only one nt domain.
Also multpily domains, requires mulitply trusts, and duplicating
login scripts/etc/etc

Mark.

Thanks many! By asking this quetion, what I really wan tto achieve is that I already have PDC running a NT Server and Exchange Server. I also have a set of BackOffice 4.5 ( trial version) that I would like to install. I probably can create a memberserver to install SQL 7.0. However, I would like to be able to use Intranet that comes when you install BackOffice and it also request for e-mail.....So what would be my best solution? PDC...BDC....Stand alone?
