Connecting to a "domain" w/Home Basic
I need to connect to a network server, but do not seem to have the option. Is
there a work-around or do I need to return the computer and get an XP model?

Neither Home Basic nor Home Premium can connect to a domain, just like
XP Home and MCE* could not. You need either Vista Business or Ultimate
or, if you want to go back to XP, XP Pro.


*Unless joined to the domain during installation, not normally done
since MCE isn't really right for business use anyway.

Re: Connecting to a "domain" w/Home Basic
Your post is not clear. The heading refers to "domain" but in the body you
state. "I need to connect to a network server...". Home Basic cannot "join"
or become a member of a domain but can connect to a network server ala
Internet.

Home Premium is XP pro's replacement and can join a domain.

Re: Connecting to a "domain" w/Home Basic
The above post is NOT correct. Home Premium corresponds to the Tablet and
Media Center editions of XP, and *cannot* join a domain. Domain-join is an
option for Business, Enterprise, and Ultimate.
