I like having my "Production" computers on a separate "Workgroup"

I can't get by the Win 7's need for a "Network Password" crossing workgroups like this. With the Win 7 computer, I have no problem connecting to a Win2000 server on the same workgroup.

I have no problem with my Win xp pro going to the Win2000 computer on the different workgroup. However I am trying to migrate away from the Winxp box.



BTW: I tried the screen shot again, and the resolution just is not very good. The important part of the screen shot is the pop up that asks for the "Network Password". One important note, I did notice that the pop up states that my Win 7 box is on a domain. The domain noted is the same name as my Win7 computer. I have dbl checked that I have defined my computer as on a business network w/o a domain.
In other words you DO NOT want Windows 7 to prompt you for username and password when connecting to another computer?
