we're running a Windows 2003 Server workgroup with 10 XP Pro Clients.  We want to convert from a workgroup to a domain.  Is there a book or web link that provides step by step instructions for doing this?
thanks

It is not something that would be writen down you would need to pay anIt guy to do this for you.. the reason why it wont be writen down is because of the fact, that IT guys wan tto keep their jobs and also know what to do when/if somethign goes wrong..
there is just to many variables to be able to do this on a manual.
thats my opinion...

there will be several tech net articles with some guides but no step by step guides that i really know of.

I personally wou;ldn't advise converting to a domain if you need to ask how to do this as you will have lots of problems managingn it.  Read up first, make backups and then attempt it if you wish.
