Server 2000/2003 Setup with XP home edition client

  1. Hi!

    I'm setting up Active Directory on my trial of MS Server 2003. Have created a domain and a user which I was hoping to setup for client access from my laptop. However, my laptop runs XP home which under "Computer Name" doesn't allow you to choose Domain over Workgroup (although it seems to be able to choose both). But then under "Users" you can't add a domain user - so when I get to my login screen, I can only login to the laptop and not the server.

    Is there any way around this?

    Does anyone know of any good server/XP home setup tutorials?
