Vista Laptop used for work on a domain network. Administrator is disabled by work IT. I would like to print on my peer to peer network at home. Can I ask my IT to set up an additional user name that I can configure to peer to peer (private) without harming or changing any settings for my work domain? When at home log in to the new user and share my home network while at home. Then return to work and sign in as usual and be set on the work domain???

    Yes this will work. If you create a local user with a local proile you can set up home networking and it won't have any effect on your domain profile.
