    Do Mac deal with workgroups like Windows does?

    I am looking to tell my Macbook that its on a particular workgroup? Can I do this? Or does it not need to be done?

    In my iMacs Network Folder lies a Workgroup folder but it's empy because I network with my PC.

    To specify a specific workgroup, do this:

    Go to Applications -> Utilities and start up Directory Access
    Click the lock to enable the controls by entering your password
    Click the SMB/CIFS service and click the Configure button
    Type the required workgroup name into the relevant box
    Click OK then Apply to make it 'active'
    Click the lock to lock it all up tight again

    That should be all you need to do. If you have any problems just let us know.
