No.  Whenever you change the workgroup or join Windows 2000 to a domain a reboot is required.

hi,
this is not possible, because there are other policies and other settings in a domain as in a workgroup, so a rebbot is required

Guess what guys, I was just at the "other" site, changed to workgroup and it said I need to re-boot. But for the heck of it, I tried to access the network and voila, I can access it just like normal. Didn't have to re-boot!
And when I came back home, changed it back to "HOME" workgroup and again it worked fine without re-boot. Try it and see.
