I'm setting up an office network with 8 new Vista Home Premium users and we want to add a file/printer server to the network.  My original thought was to setup Windows Server 2008 as a DC, then join everyone to the domain, share files, printers, ect.  The reason was so users don't have to log in twice to get access to their files as well as being able to log into other workstations.  

Since Vista Home Premium won't allow users to join domains, is there a way around this or a better way to accomplish this?  Upgrading Vista is not a option right now.. believe me.  

Thoughts?
Thanks
