Yes you can, either as peer to peer of domain, use tcp/ip as the protocol for both

Commented:
Could you explain 'connect' ??

you want to use file-sharing, or make the Windows XP or Windows ME workstation (which of both??) a client in the domain!?

You can NOT make XP Home Edition a member of a domain, you have to have XP professional for that.

ahongens,

I want to connect a client in a LAN domain.

Commented:
Again, I've never heard of WindowsXP Millenium Edition, but this might help:

You can join a domain with:

-Windows ME (Milennium edition)
-Windows XP Professional

but not:

-Windows XP Home edition.

I'm sorry!!! it's not Windows XP Millenium Edition it's just Windows XP.

Sorry about that

Commented:
There are a few editions of Windows XP,

- Windows XP Home Edition
- Windows XP Professional
- Windows 2002 Server (not released yet)
- Windows 2002 Advanced Server (not released yet)

You can join every version to a domain, except for the home edition.
