Windows Workgroup settings

I've got Samba working (2.0.7 on Solaris 2.7) and using
dhcpd (isc).

Everything works fine, however I'm trying to use one domain at home
and still be able to use everything at work (so my laptop can zap
between the two).

As the domains are different, the workgroup is different too (which I
had to manually change in the control pannel -> network settings
client for MS networks -> identification) so though I can log on to
the domain at home, I cant browse etc. As soon as I changed the
id to my home workgroup everything worked.

Can that be set through dhcp ? Or is there an easier way ?
