This was a "semi"-yes.  It couldn't find the profile for Home/Linda, so
said it would use the local profile -- then it said it couldn't find it, so it
logged me in to a temporary directory.  My "home" directory was setup as
//<servername>/<user> -- not //DOMAIN/<user>.  Despite unexpected location
for the home directory, it did allow me to log in with the Domain/User

It *may* be that I have drives mounted from the server and windows
generally complains about having more than 1 connection to a server
with different credentials (lame!?), but usually it says that's the
problem instead of giving a failure with with wrong user/password,

Maybe a better question might be how to make my local login and
the domain login map to the same USER on my winXP machine?

It's been quite a while since I've read the NT-Domain specific
documentation.  I'm not entirely sure why my local logon _isn't_
the same as the DOMAIN/user logon -- I'm able to access files
as though I were logged in as the same username on the domain host.

I was hoping to have "runas" act as something like a "su" in linux...
