A remote Workstation (Windows XP) requires access (Login) to the Server Domain. A DSL service is used for Internat Access.  What do I need at the Workstation (Software/Hardware) for
the AD Users to Login to the Netork Domain?

You're going to need to setup a VPN connection between the Server and workstation.  Then in the AD properties of the user account click the Dial-In tab and select "Allow access" for Remote Access.

You could use one od several technologies or a combination see http://www.petri.co.il/what's_remote_desktop.htm

Depends what you want it for but VPN is often favoured see http://www.microsoft.com/technet/network/vpn/default.mspx

What's the OS of your office server and brand of office router?  They may have this feature built-in.
