Windows XP Home Edition and SBS 2000

By med103 ·
My clients just picked up a new Dell with XP home installed and want to use it with their 2000 network. I seem to remember reading that using Home Edition isn't a good idea on a SBS network. Any thoughts?
Thanks,

XP Home unable to join a domain

XP Home is meant for Home use it is unable to join a domain. They need XP Pro, this would be a good time to remind them to consult you before buying equipment.

As I suspected. I found this article http://www.microsoftmonitor.com/archives/005569.html and this is basically what happened. They found some super deal from Dell who put the computer on their business page and bought it.
Thanks again,
Mike
