understanding the definitions

by Chris.. In reply to not joining network

OK I think your terminology is part of the issues. Workgroups require little or no authentication and really are only around to permit the sharing of common pool resources .. file shares, printers, etc..

Domains are really about security boundries with 2003. **** come to think of it Domains have been that way since 4.0 ... I'm not up on my Linux interoperability, but the XP machine just needs to join the domain. Do note though, that you must be running XP professional to join a domain. that functionality is not available to XP Home.

Does that help?
