How do I trust a non-domain client in a mixed Windows 2000/3 Directory

We have a remote Windows XP Pro client that has remote access to our domain. This XP client is NOT in our domain. What's the easiest solution for granting this client network resources within the domain without having to enter logon info?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1) create a user account in the domain (i.e.  username = remoteuser and set a password for this user)

2) assign the proper NTFS and share level rights to the data on the server using the remoteuser domain account.

3) create a user account on the XP pro machine with the same name as the domain account (i.e. remoteuser)  Set the password for the local remoteuser account on the XP pro machine to the same password of the remoteuser account of the domain.

4) have the user login to the XP pro using the Remoteuser local user account.  (\\servername\  <enter>)

5) try to access the server... you should not be prompted for user name and will be using the credentials of the logged in user.
