    I have a notebook with XP pro on it which is part of a corporate domain for my work. I would like to try and network this to my home PC (also XP Pro) which is not networked. If I create a new workgroup for a home network (peer to peer) do I have to disjoin the corporate domain for my laptop in order to join the workgroup? I don't really want to do this as I think I will lose the ability to logon to the LAN at work, and could also disable my machine certificate for my VPN. I need to get the 2 machines to transfer data either via crossover cable or via a hub, but don't want to risk trashing the work pc. Any suggestions????

    Try connecting them as is, and don't change workgroups, and set up either an ftp, or just type \\<ip address> in the explorer to reach the shares
    Not sure if it will work, but it probably will

    Thanks Redsolar;

    I will try this later in the week when I get a little free time and let you know how it goes.
