Windows XP Home, Can I join a WinXP Home w/ a domain controler or use domain name space, Legal essues.

In win xp Home, we can not define domain name for a computer, can define only workgoupname.
On internet there are some references that you can join a machine in a domain by tricking the whole procedure, and using as workgroup computer name the domain name or something like this hxxp://vowe.net/archives/001639.html

or

hxxp://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/wxphdoms.html

1) By using as a workgroup name a "domain name" sales.sadikhov.com we do not join domain controler, am i right?
1a) If yes, are there any drawbacks?
1b) Is there any way to forbit such win xp home joins?
2) We join the domain name space, or am i mistaken;
3) Are there any legal essues when fakeing the procedure this way.

Pals this is very important to me and need help.
What can we do and what we can't

I would like my pals to discuss this matter as broadlly as possible.

Windows XP home does not include the necessary files to connect to a domain. On domains, there is certain necessary communications for connection to the domain. With out this connection there is no Folder, User, Share, file, etc level security.
The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently

To put it in a nutshell, it won't work. You will need to go out and buy a copy of XP Pro.
