What specifically do you mean by "works"?

If have a samba controlled domain. My XP machines are members of the
domain. I am NOT aware of any problems. All applications work just fine
whether they use local resources or domain resources.

Then again, your mileage may vary. It all depends on what you mean by
"works"! My crystal ball is in need of some maintenance - it does not
give me a clear indication of what your needs are.
