I have a upgraded a Windows 98 PC to Win 2000 Pro. But I
was Unable to connect it to the domain. The error appears
after I have supplied the domain username and password.
The error message is "The following error occurred
attempting to join the domain "ELAN". The network name

Can you give a bit more details? Anyway, just make sure you have the right IP address. Ping the address of the server to test the connection. Also be sure the prefered DNS server ip is set on your work station as Win2k uses that.

Sounds like it may be a DNS problem.

Try running nslookup <name of DC> and see if it resolves to the correct IP address. If not, check the DNS configuration.

Also, make sure you can ping the IP address of the domain controller to ensure basicconnectivity is there.

Can you connect to a workgroup instead of Domain then try to connect to Domain again (two reboots).
Does Domain have a fully qualified name i.e. Elan.domain.uk ? I sometimes have to use the whole name other times not.
