    Default Need to join Windows XP Media Center edition to domain

    Is it possible to do this? I have tried many things trying to get this to work. I think that this is the biggest flaw that Microsoft has with this edition of XP. I was just wondering if any knows of a way to do it. From what I have found, alot of people have this problem but haven't been able to find a solution. Thanks for any help, JF

    You can join media center to a domain. You have to do it the first time you turn the computer on and are installing windows. At least thats what my brother told me. I haven't had the opportunity to try t out but I think it might work. JF
