Hi all,

I upgraded a computer from windows 98 to windows XP Pro. All hardware works ok, as I am using the internet on it through a linux server, however I cannot seem to change the workgroup name, even starting in safe mode as an administrator, the network setup button is disabled.  Where in the registry is the workgroup value located?

Right-Click "My computer"
go to "Properties"
go to "Computer name"
Click on "Change"

I just did a search through my registry for my workgroup name and did not find it so I cannot answer that portion of your question, however, if you refer to Microsoft knowledge base article 295017 found here: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;295017&Product=winxp it will walk you through several methods to change your network configuration.

Hope this helps.
