Default Domain and Workgroup on same machine???

I have a Vista 64 Laptop I use going to and from work. It is registered to the work domain but when I am at home I need to connect it to the workgroup at home so I can do file and printer sharing with my older XP machine. How can this be done? Oh yes, I have appropriate drives loaded on the Vista machine and when I search for a network printer I show a printer with some confusing hexadecimal name being on the XP machine but it will not connect to it.
