Now, I've been under the impression that I need XP Professional in order to join that domain, log into that network and do what I need to do. Some folks have told me that this isn't so, that any flavor of XP will work with something like Tight VNC and theWindows Remote Desktop Connection. I've had these so long (going back to a Win98 SE machine, I've no idea if the Remote Desktop Connection is even part of th OS.
The reason I ask this is I'd like to get an inexpensive replacement for my laptop machine, but finding one with XP Pro is a trick and generally is considerably spendier.
So, what's the real scoop here? The target network/domain is running on Win 2000.
Thanks for any help, I'll be glad to reciprocate if it's somethihng I know about.
