work domain screwing up home network attempt

#1
my windows 7 is on a work laptop. It connects at work through a domain instead workgroup or homegroup at least this is my interpretation of a domain. AT home I run xp pro and I have tried to setup a network with bad results. If I install a dual boot with windows 7 at home, I will then be able to use the homegroup which I have heard is much easier. My question is will the domain setup through work be a problem here? I am specifically thinking about if I have to change the laptops computer name. Any ideas? Thanks!
