Xteq X-Setup from http://www.xteq.com/products/xset/ can allow some better LAN 
functionality, at a price - you must enable auto-logons (how insecure can you 
get?). I've used it with some degree of success on individual's private 
systems that needed a workable connection to the corporate LAN. I would never 
use its psuedo "domain" capabilities on the corporate systems.

Then they will always be crippled to one degree or another.


I echo John T. here. And add that although the OS is badly butchered MS has to 
at least be somewhat applauded for aptly naming it - the big "HOME" in the 
title should be a clear clue to all.
