On Xp Home's Network Identification, I can't find anything to enter domain
name in order to join the domain? Is there any other way of doing it? Any
help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Garu

You can't find it because it's not there.

Windows XP Home Edition doesn't have domain capabilities. You'll need Pro.

Hi Garu,

Upgrade the system to Pro, XP Home cannot join a domain.

WinXP Home is not designed to, nor can it truly be made to, join a
domain. Nor does it allow the same sort of seamless access provided by
Win9x, although domain resources can be manually accessed by properly
authenticated users.

Which Edition Is Right for You

While a WinXP Home machine cannot be made a domain member, it's
still possible for a properly authenticated user to access domain
resources from a WinXP Home PC. He/she merely has to enter his domain
user name at password for each connection/share required.
