It's not possible so far as I know. A domain profile, local or
otherwise, is specific to that domain. As soon as you unjoin/rejoin a
new domain, XP will create a username.NEWDOMAIN profile on your laptop.

The closest I can suggest is to have the laptop in a workgroup, and just
map drives as required?
