Laptop to be used in office network and offline at home

We have set up a small SBS 2003 network with 5 PCs. A new user wishes to use an XP Professional laptop to join himself plus his laptop to the office domain. HE also wants to take the laptop home to work on Word files etc. If we set this up will he be able to login with his network credentials when at home and the laptop allow him to perform offline functions such as creating a Word document. Or will the laptop stop him as there will be no SBS server available at home? Would he, for instance, be required to log in as the laptop administrator when at home. Thanks for any assistance.

Hi RichardWalsh,

xp will load his cached credentials - so the answer is yes, he will be fine, i am sitting on my laptop that is a member of a domain at work and i am at home :)
