It's not quite that cut and dried. You can access a server from VHP, just not
as a domain member. Every Windows computer can be a server, whether its running
Windows NT, 2000, XP, 2003, or Vista. Every Windows computer can be a client to
a server too.
VHP can't join a domain, but it can access a server, as long as you have a local
account setup on the server for network access.
