In the world of NT there are two types of machines. Workstations and Servers. The server they can be broken down into Member servers and Domain Controllers.

You need to select the entry on the domain list which matches the name of the computer. This does assume that you know the name of the machine. If this entry exists you have a Member server or a workstation. You should know if it is a Server or Workstation from the splash screen at startup.

If no entry on the list matches the machine then the machine is a Domain Controller for the domain.

If you are sure you have the password for the administrator account then try accessing the machine with this account for each of the entries on the list.

If we are taking about NT 4.0, Once the machine is a Domain controller there is nothing the can be done to change this except a rebuild. Windows 2000 there is.

For a member server that is part of a domain you have more flexability. It can be change to a workgroup, once you have logged onto the machine as a Admin.
