Windows 7: Create Domain-like groups in windows 7??

Create Domain-like groups in windows 7??

I was just wondering, as I'm not that familiar with intermediate features of non-NOS windows releases. I noticed that when you log into different computers on the home network, they are still prefixed with a domain (the computer name/hostname). Is there a way to put all of my home computers on the same "domain" ? Of course, I mean to do this without the use of a server/domain controller.

I know that windows 7 has homegroups,ut i'm not sure if this will work the same way.
