    Hey all
    I have a laptop which I use for both business and personal use. The laptop is running Windows XP professional. I want to set up two or more users/profiles on the laptop, each user must be connected to a different workgroup or domain. So, if I have 3 users, then one user must connect to a domain and the two other users must connect to TWO DIFFERENT WORKGROUPS.

    Is this possible and how do I do this?

    As far as I know you will have to remove the computer from the network & join it to the workgroup..and vice/versa if you want to use it on different networks.. It cant be joined to more than 1 network at any given time. Even though you would be using it in 2 different locations it still remains joined to the network/workgroup that is already there.
