What to put in workgroup box?

Recommended Posts

I have what probably is a stupid question. What should I put in the workgroup box as my workgroup on the unattended page so it doesn't pop up while installing xp?

Can I just make something up? I'm not part of a network or anything and just use ethernet to connect to my dsl.

Thanks!

As a security through obscurity tactic, you have the unique opportunity to call your "workgroup" something besides MSHOME or WORKGROUP. I know it's kinda cheesy, but if you are accidentally leaking netbios type protocols out (a possible danger if you're using a public IP). It will help (slightly) keep your computer from being browseable from the default workgroups. Edited by JoeMSFN
