i have a domain (2003 servers) at the office an i have a pc from that domain off site and they want to use the PC but cannot log in to it with any other credentials other than Administrator. I logged to the local PC to set up a new local account and it says unable to set up the account because the user does not exist? how can i set up a new local user account?

If you log into the local Administrator account you could create a local user account from there if it is not prohibited by a group policy from the domain?

I did not find any such local GP among my GPs. My xp pro is just local. But could it be a domain group policy?

log into the local PC with the administrator account and then go to Start>Run... type "control userpasswords2" and press enter.

Try creating an account this way and let me know what happens.
