FWIW, the default workgroup name of later versions of Windows XP Home is
MSHOME; not sure what it is for XP Pro or Server 2003.
workgroup=WORKGROUP was the default back in the Win9x and NT days. The
moral of the story is double-check this on all your machines, because
you never know when some brain-dead sysadmin (such as People Like
Me(tm)) has changed it then forgotten that it was changed, or assumed it
was changed when it wasn't.
