How to add a XPpro WS to an NT4 Netw.?

By a.schawohl ·
I have the task to add a new XP pro machine as Workstation, to an older NT4 - Ethernet LAN. The existing Network is running with NT4 Workstations and NT4 Server. Will it work? are there important steps to look at? anyone with experience?

It should add just fine if you have a computer account in the domain already.

Sure, it works without a glitch. All my new boxes (now sth like 15+) are equipped with XP and have no problems whatsoever (although logon to the NT4 PDC does take a bit longer than for the old 98SE machines). No special steps are necessary, just plug in and presto, you're there. I assume you have DHCP and SP6a just like myself, but even without it you're ready out of the box.
