Joining a domain should be the exact same process for Vista and 7, as it is for XP. What have you tried, and what error are you getting?

Yeah I have followed all the right steps to join a domain, its just that 7 and Vista say that they are unable to connect to the domain that i have established, im not sure of the exact text of the error. But i know it exists because they can identify it just not connect to it.
