Any one know how to join a domain from within XP Media Centre Edition?

I'm log in as administrator but the Network ID in Computer Name in System
Property is greyed out. Anyone knows if there is a way round this or I is
not a feature of Media Centre Edition.

Thanks

Multi-Posting?

New Installations (Clean Installations, Not Upgraded) of Media Center Cannot
Join a Windows Server Domain
With the exception of upgrades from Media Center 2004, computers running
Media Center 2005 can participate only in network workgroups; they cannot
join a Windows Server domain. This change affects very few users.
