We've created a new domain win.example.com, so now we have example.com
and win.example.com.  example.com will host our core services like
DBs, Web, and Mail.  Users and groups are scripted into
win.example.com, and a trust is setup between the two.  Some users,
however, are still in the example.com domain.

Now, we're expanding to AD sites in our remote offices.  We're going
to place a DC at each remote office with AD, DNS, WINS, and DHCP.  So,
if the remote site uses a win.example.com DC, will example.com users
be able to authenticate off the win.example.com DC?

Thanks for your help!
