You're going to have some fun!! I hope you are familiar with Windows API programming in VB, as most of the functionality comes from Netapi32.
To get Workstation info you'll need NetWkstaGetInfo, to enumerate servers in a lan it's NetServerEnum, and to get info about each it's NetServerGetInfo.
Look at: (it's all one string, I'm not sure how to add an URL here)

This lists all the functions in this API.
