If the server is running Active Directory with Roaming Profiles, the server will do all this for you as all your settings are stored in what is called you 'Profile', ask your systems administrator if you are not too sure about the server set-up.

Ensure that you connect the new PC to the Domain via right clicking 'My Computer/Properties/Computer Name' If you have DHCP running this will assign an IP address to the new PC. Make sure you have the Firewall tunred off while doing this process.
