How to join a MCE to a domain

I almost called this post “the Banana” as you will see when you read the post on the google link.

Now I'm not one to advocate a 'non supported' solution..but.. well.. I just think it's totally DUMB that a MCE 2005 cannot be optionally joined to a domain.  I can't tell you how many people have said they wanted the 'coolness' of a MCE 2005 sitting in their conference rooms and once they found out it couldn't hang off the domain so that they could control it like any other box they backed off of it.

So ..here's the “Banana hack

And Microsoft?  Realize that some of us are flexible out here and want these suckers in businesses? 

You probably also have no idea how much more sense a SBS makes in a Mac network over and above an OSX do you?  Guess I'd better blog about that one next....

It would be great to know your thoughts on why SBS should be sold to a client with Macs instead of and Apple server. (forget Exchange and OWA as goodies)
