If you have a computer running WinXP Professional; that was setup in the beginning just logging onto their own computer and not on the network; but now needs to log onto a network with a domain; but wants to transfer or copy all user settings and documents, icons, etc. to the new desktop; How can this be accomplished?

Use the built-in Files and Settings Transfer Wizard:

To open the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Files and Settings Transfer Wizard.

I am not installing a new computer. Keeping the same computer. Only difference will be at the log on menu which we will now choose log on to domain network instead of my computer. Is this still what I need to use?

Under the system applet in Control Panel select advanced, then user profile/settings. Highlight the profile you want to copy, then click copy to. Browse to the Default User under C:/Documents and settings this will make all new profiles the same as the one you wish to replicate. (if you cannot see default user you have to open explorer, and enable show hidden files.
