Workgroup switching

I just received my new notebook, which I plan to use both at home and at work.  However my workgroups are named differently.  Provided that I can't change the name of either workgroup, is there any way to be able to log on to both networks (not simultaneously) without having to change the network that my computer belongs to?  I know that I could just dual-boot the computer, but as of now that's not much of an option.  I'd still like to know what my other options are.  Any ideas?

Reading back over that it didn't sound right.  I can set up multiple connections for both networks, but not multiple workgroups that the computer belongs to.  Also I'm running XP home.

Here is a product that I've never used but just read about recently.  It's called Mobile Net Switch and can do exactly what you want plus a whole lot more.  It looks like you can download a fully functional trial and, if you like it, purchase it for only $15.  Sounds pretty cool to me.  Let me know if this helps...
