That type of entry needs to be done through a direct registry edit, as it is not available directly in XP Home, as a few here have said. Do the following:

start>run
regedit

Navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa

On the right side, look for the folloing key:
LmCompatibilityLevel

Double-click the key, and in the value field, enter 1

Click on apply/ok.
NOTE: If the LmCompatibilityLevel key does not exist on the right side, you will have to create it as follows:
Right-click an empty area in the right pane
Select New>DWord Value
Name it "LmCompatibilityLevel"  (NO QUOTES)
Make sure that Hexadecimal is selected
Enter "1" in the value box (NO QUOTES)
click on apply/ok
Reboot to take affect

For a full list of available entries for this entry, see below:

0    Send LM & NTLM responses Clients use LM and NTLM authentication and never use NTLMv2 session security; domain controllers accept LM, NTLM, and NTLMv2 authentication.
1    Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated Clients use LM and NTLM authentication, and use NTLMv2 session security if the server supports it; domain controllers accept LM, NTLM, and NTLMv2 authentication.
2     Send NTLM response only Clients use NTLM authentication only and use NTLMv2 session security if the server supports it; domain controllers accept LM, NTLM, and NTLMv2 authentication.
3     Send NTLMv2 response only Clients use NTLMv2 authentication only and use NTLMv2 session security if the server supports it; domain controllers accept LM, NTLM, and NTLMv2 authentication.
4     Send NTLMv2 response only/refuse LM Clients use NTLMv2 authentication only and use NTLMv2 session security if the server supports it. Domain controllers refuse LM and accept only NTLM and NTLMv2 authentication).
5     Send NTLMv2 response only/refuse LM & NTLM Clients use NTLMv2 authentication only and use NTLMv2 session security if the server supports it; domain controllers refuse LM and NTLM (they accept only NTLMv2 authentication).

go to services:

start>run
services.msc

Scroll down and see if ipsec service is listed. If so, open it up and set the startup type to automatic. Start the service running by clicking on Start.

Now do this:
Start -> Run -> MMC

See if you now have access to the local security policy.
