Win XP Home PC in Win2K Domain?

By Hutchinson ·
At home I run a Win2K Server, and my wife's PC is running Win-XP-Home. The Network Configuration dialog boxes are different than in XP-Pro and doesn't give me the opportunity to "Join a Domain".

Is this even possible with XP-Home? I realize that M$ is discouraging people from purchasing the lower-cost OS for Business use, but it seems as though there must be a way to do it...

Thanks, in advance.

Thanks you for the links. I figured I'd probably have to use the Server as a Workgroup instead of a Domain, but I was hoping...
