My Home Network Name?

Can someone explain how I can find out what my home network is called? My son set ours up years ago and I want to add another laptop - but it needs to have the same name which isn't the standard MSHOME that comes up on the wizard. So if there is a way of finding out what it is currently called I would be grateful to know how to find it.
Thanks

In XP, right-click My Computer > Properties > Computer Name to check the Workgroup Name.

Incidentally, using the same Workgroup Name is not mandatory for file sharing, just tidier.

Thanks, I knew it would be simple.
