    From my understanding there are not any different system requirements between home and pro. Here is a link with the basic differences but I am sure you already know this. Click Here!. One thing! I have XP pro running on a 400 with 64 megs or memory and it was a pig until I added another 128, so you might take that into consideration!

    The difference in versions are as follows

    Home Edition can't logon a domain (well it's not susposed to, with Powertoys you can).

    Some networking tools can't remember which aren't included.

    There should not be a difference in performance between the two editions.

    mrw...this is supposed to be a myth...and every expert that I know says there's nothing in power toys to accomplish this, so, we all have power toys....if you know how to do it, please post it...thanx

    Pro is also said to have better security...not really sure what it is though...
