    I suggest you remove a few of the exclamation marks and the chances that somebody will help you will increase exponentially (or close to it :p )

    Do you mean join a Domain? if this is what you mean, no, Win 7 Home premium cant join a domain (or became a PDC for that matter), it lacks the features needed to do so. It can only be on a workgroup. Only Pro and Ultimate can join a domain.

    Computers must be running Windows 7 to participate in a homegroup. HomeGroup is available in all editions of Windows 7

    I hope this answers your question. As far as I know this is still true.
