I have just ordered a new desktop pc with Microsoft XP Media Center. I wanted to network it with my existing laptop which has an OS of Microsoft XP Home. Can I do it. Or should I cancel my order and get a new pc with Windows Home?

Please help. thanks

To the best of my knowledge, you can use the Media Centre PC the same as XP Home.

I have done exactly what you want to do. My PC is XP MCE and it is networked with an XP Home laptop.

My home network has computers running XP Home, XP Pro and OS X Tiger - All work perfectly happy togther.

You will have no problem (famous last words :o) ) networking Home and Media together.
