Multiple Homegroups

I have a homegroup set up at home, and I would like to have another homegroup when I am at work.. Home and work have a desktop PC, I have a notebook, so I am always going back and forth..

How do I set up multiple homegroups so when I am home, it sees my home desktop, and when I am at work it sees my work desktop..?

I guess you would just setup your homegroup at home between the pc and the laptop, print out the password, then when your at work join the homegroup you setup at your home from the work PC. This is a single homegroup with 3 way access, but why not - post back if you dont think this suits.
