Changing WORKGROUP names

I have 3 computers networked together. One runs W(*, one XP SP" and one VISTA. I would like to change their WORKGROUP names. How do I do this for each OS?

For the XP/Vista machines, go to start menu/run or Start orb/search menu and type sysdm.cpl. In Vista Network Name and ID are right there, in XP click the Computer Name tab. For 98, read this; click here

Thanks BRUNDLE everything worked fine. In fact it took longer to update all the shortcuts/ links etc. than to make the changes. Thanks again for your help.
