Windows XP Home edition is not designed to connect to a domain environment. Microsoft crippled Windows XP Home edition to force users to go for the more expensive Windows XP Pro version to have these extra functions. Researching on the net, there is a free software tool called Xteq X-Setup 6.1 that puts this functionality back.

This link above (if you look at the second paragraph down) also states that you can connect to your file servers by simply mapping a drive and selecting re-connect. Once you have entered the username and password, Windows XP will re-send this set of credentials whenever you connect to another share on that server.

Hope it helps

MORE INFORMATION
Windows XP Home Edition cannot participate in a domain infrastructure. It can participate only in a Workgroup infrastructure. Windows XP Professional, Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, and Windows XP Media Center Edition 2004 can participate in a domain infrastructure or in a workgroup infrastructure.

Note Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 can join a domain only if it is upgraded from a Windows XP Media Center Edition 2004 installation that is joined to a domain.

A technician diagnoses problem as being a domain-related or as being a computer-related. If the problem domain-related, the user must contact a network administrator. Alternatively, a customer representative must create PRO incident.

If the technician diagnoses the problem as being domain-related, we recommend that the user remove the computer from the domain and join it to a workgroup. If this does not resolve the problem, but the technician still believes that the problem is domain-related, the user must contact the network administrator. Alternatively, a customer representative must create PRO incident.
