Can XP Pro auditing features (like keeping login reports for all computers on
a small network) work on a network on which some of the computers are XP
Home?

Similarly, can the one xp pro computer on the network set file access
restrictions that apply to all other computers on the network?

Thanks for your reply.

Not sure. Try posting that question to the network newsgroup.

File and folder security settings can only be applied to disk drives
that are physically located in that particular computer.

You can set file and folder level security on XP Home machines,
provided the drivers are NTFS of course, by booting the computer into
Safe Mode and doing the configuration from there. When the computer
is rebooted into normal mode the configured settings will still apply.

Good luck
