	So, you don't have a Domain.

	If you don't have roaming profiles (and you probably
don't have it) and if you don't have to join your machines
to the network, I think it is going to be even easier. ;)

	Sounds like. Not sure about your topology, so I can't
be 100% sure, but if you isolate the subnets, yes, pretty
