    I will be getting Vista Ultimate for my main workstation, but for a computer
    I use downstairs in my studio I need another version of Vista. The essential
    requirement is the ability to add the computer in the studio to my SOHO
    network (it will be wired not wireless). In MS's comparison chart of Vista
    versions, the Business version has checkmarks against networking whereas the
    Home Premium version doesn't. However the Home Premium version is quite a
    bit cheaper.

    So the question is, will I experience any problems using the Home Premium
    version on my network.

    Vista Home Premium cannot join a network Domain, just as XP
    Home and MCE cannot join a domain (without some tweaking),
    but you can be a member of a Workgroup. Most SOHO networks
    are not set up on a dedicated server and usually are part of
    a Workgroup.

    better if i could join it on my server domain

    I don't think I kept any of the references. I ran across a
    post a few months ago and when I looked into it I decided it
    was too much of a gamble. You can find links by Googling
    for 'join domain mce' without the quote marks. I don't have
    a MCE boot disc either with the laptop that has MCE. The
    laptop is a company owned laptop.
