Client connections to Server 2003

to connect to server 2003 Small Business Standard, do the workstations need to be XP Professional or will Home Edition also be able to connect?
1 Solution
Lee W, MVPTechnology and Business Process AdvisorCommented:
SBS is a domain environment, Home Edition cannot be joined to a domain environment.  You can still use home edition, but many of the client features SBS provides won't be there -

*Logon scripts won't run
*Users cannot logon directly to the domain; they will be prompted for a password when connecting to the server
*Management capabilities on the home machines will not be available.
