Networking between Workgroup and Domain computers

I have a client who wants to take his work notebook (which is part of a Windows Server 2003 Domain) and use it at home as well from time to time. This works fine providing he does not try and share/access resources on his home workgroup network.

What if any best practise/methods are there are sharing / accessing resources on his home workgroup network from his work's Notebook?

He should still be able to access resources on the home network, it will just ask for a local user name and password when he tries to connect the 1st time.
There are utilities that allow you to easily switch from one network to another that automatically change IP addressing, mapped drives, printers, and such. Some also allow you to change domains, but I strongly discourage that as it often corrupts the user profile.
