about this part

"- You can't connect your computer to a network (a network that uses a domain controller, like you would have in a work environment). You can connect to the internet at home, through your router or dial-up connection."

I am using Network switch to connect my PC to the internet (we have 8 people LAN and each other is shares internet via network) so if im right i wount be able to connect to the internet?

besides that i guess i will not be able to share files between LAN members?
With Home Premium you can share files on a LAN. The Professional version allows use of a domain controller, which most home systems don't have.

I have three systems plus a network storage device, plus a network printer. Everything works fine with Home Premium through my router.
will i be able to host a server for games?

sorry for such questions, but i am really a noob at the terms...and i might not understand some features meaning the ones i am using maybe ;

If you want to host the server on your LAN, I can't see why not. You may have to adjust the router if you want to use it for Internet server hosting.
