Windows XP Home connecting to ACT 2007 on work domain

we have 2 laptops that we use as workstations.  They are XP Home, the rest are XP pro.  The pro will open the shared database no problem.  The XP Home ones give an error about not authorized to open the database.  How do i get these home XP boxes to open the database?

 

Act 2007.

You are running a Domain?

 

XP Home cannot connect to a domain without hacking the registry.

Yes on a domain.

 

Where might one find an article on such a hack?

As I don't think it's legal, I don't think I'll post it here... but try a Google search.
