What steps have you taken to configure your machine to be part of the domain? What about the workgroup? Please review the following MS Article -- Using a Portable Computer from Work on Your Home Network. While you may not be using a "portable" machine, you are still trying to switch between two different network types.

Are you using Windows XP Home Edition, or Windows XP Professional Edition?

This is most likely your issue; therefore creating a separate partition with the same version installed will not resolve your issue.

Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 - FAQ:
Can I connect a new PC running Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 to a work network or domain?
While you can access network resources on a work network or a domain, you cannot join a Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 PC to the domain. PCs running Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 are designed specifically for home use. Windows XP Professional features, specifically Domain Join and Cached Credentials (Credentials Manager for logons) are not included. As a result, you will be prompted for your logon user name and password to access network resources after you reboot or log back on to the PC. In addition, file shares or network resources that are set to require a domain-joined PC for access will not be available. Remote Desktop and Encrypting File System support are still included.
