How to create computer account? OR How to make a client member of the domain?

COMPUTER ACCOUNTS
In a domain network, we create user
accounts in the Active Directory (AD). Users logon to the domain using client
PCs. A computer account of the client PC is to be created in the Active
Directory. In other words, client PCs are to be made members of the domain and
only then users can logon using the clients.
