    Home systems normally use WORKGROUPS, and not a Domain - - a real Domain Controller(DC) requires a Windows Server {2000, 2003, 2008}, another system to run it and lots of $$$$

    Most of us never need a DC - - why do you think you need a Domain?

    I don't understand that statement :(

    so WHY doesn't simple filesharing work for you? I have XP/Pro sharing with Linux, Mac OSx, and even an old boat anchor link Win/98se - - no domain is required.

    I think he wants a central point of authentication which can be changed/managed in one location.
