Although I am unsure about the domain policies, Win XP policies are the same as Win2k policies (with some additional items added). So using 2k policies should work fine in XP

I know that the MMC isn't available on XP Home if you click start run and type MMC click ok. So the Group Policy Snap in won't be available.

If you want to know if you can configure GP, click start, then run. In the run box type MMC and click ok. The Microsoft Management Console shouldn't open on XP Home. If it does, then click file naviagate and click Add/Remove Snap in. With the Add/Remove Snap in Windows open Click the add button, in the add snap in windows scroll down the list and find GP. If you can do all this then you can configure GP on XP Home on the local machine.

GRoup Policies are not applicable to Home Edition, there is no GPEDIT console on home edition and since its not part of a domain it cannot receive GPO policies either. You will have to use Regedit or Tweakui to change settings on XP Home. XP Pro will work fine though with GPOs.
