Default Curious: Network domain without server?

Is it possible to set up a network domain without having a server. Could one be set up on a normal pc connected to a network/lan or Hub ?

I'm not 100% sure about this, but I think you'll have to have a domain controller in order to have a domain (something to keep track of usernames, workstations, active directory and stuff). Like I said I'm not 100% sure so you may want to get a 2nd opinion.

It's not a domain unless it's client-server.

What you're proposing is peer-to-peer, which is an entirely different setup.
