Some colleges require that PCs connected to their networks be capable of joining a domain. XP Media Edition CANNOT join a domain. It can be networked, as in workgroup...and it can access some network resources if they are available, but it cannot join a domain.
Meaning, you may not be able to access university storage space (required by instructors sometimes), log into a university email system, print to university printers, etc
Surfing the net....you can probably do that, but that could differ on how they are set up, I think...
So, the first thing you need to do is contact the IT department at the college

It might just be me but the only reason I've found for wanting to watch TV through the monitor is if I'm doing a spot of video capturing and/or editing, either from source tape or TV transmissions.
Anyway you can always buy your own TV capture card, stick that in and it does the same job under standard XP, plus its a [bleep] sight cheaper as well.
