You need a wins or a dns server for a win 2000 to be part of a NT4 domain.
If you have wins or DNS make sure that the address for one or both is in the TCP\IP settins In the network icon in control pannel.

It is certainly better to have WINS and DNS, but if you don't have them, you can still join Windows NT domain (provided that you are on the same subnet as your domain controller).
The easiest is if you have administrator privileges on NT domain. You can then proceed as follows.

On your Windows 2000 Professional log on as user with Administrator privileges on local (Win2000Pro) computer.

Right click My Computer, click Properties.
System Properties window is opened.
Click Network Identification Tab.
Click Network ID.
Network Identification Wizard will guide you thru the process of joining a domain explaining which information you must have ready (Domain name that you want to join, Username with administrative privileges and password).
