You'll need to edit this file: /usr/local/etc/smb.conf

Edit this string:

workgroup = MYGROUP


workgroup = home

This is apart of the samba configuration, if you want to learn more 
about it, you should type in "man smb.conf" to read about all the 
various options for working with a Windows network.

Hope that helps!
