Can XP Home Edition be used as a client on an NT 4.0 sp4 Small Business Server? I have purchased a new machine with XP Home Edition, installed a network card, and configured the network (client type, protocols, etc.). I believe I have the networking configured correctly on the new machine. But I cannot get it to open a network login dialog when I boot up.

Has anyone had any experience with this. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

XP Home, does not include the necessary components to authenticate to a Domain. You can only use it to access network shares.

Thanks for your reply. In trying to configure the machine, I finally determined this fact. I could see the shares established on the network but could not login to the NT server. Fortunately, from this machine, all I really needed was to be able to access the internet across our DSL connection. I was able to get this accomplished.
