    can a computer belong to both workgroup & domain on the same profile

    No

    But a workgroup can have the same name as a domain so they appear (in network places) to be together.

    You will lose all the domain security options, of course...

    What exactly are you trying to do?

      thank's tom for replying

      i have a laptop that belong to a domain at work and i wont it to be a part of a workgroup at home.
      is there anyway of making two profiles or add a new user within the domain and to attribute him to the workgroup sound not logical isn't it
      maybe the soloution is dualbooting 1 o/s for work and the other for home

        There is software called "Multi Network Manager" which will allow you to choose which network settings you want at boot up. Alternatively you could chose the "log on to local machine" option when you boot at home and you should be able to see the workgroup without problems. XP allows two different network configurations -- auto ? for work and pre-set IP for home?
