Cleatus AR15FENCER is correct, Windows XP Home edition cannot connect to an NT domain. You need the Pro version. --Don

I don't believe XP home is networkable in a domain environment. Were you actually able to add the workstation to the domain and say run login scripts?

Windows XP Home : Accessing data on a Domain Server Unlike Windows XP Professional, Windows XP Home Edition is NOT able to join a Domain: (no possibility to define the Domain name in the Properties of your XP Home Edition system ) But you can still access data on a Windows NT4 or Windows 2000 Domain server : how to configure can be found at http://www.wown.com/j_helmig/wxphdoms.htm I hope this helps

So, they removed functionality that was previously included in Windows 95, 98, Me, and Windows 2000 pro?
