Windows 7: Confused about Homegroups.

Confused about Homegroups.

I created a VPN using Hamachi, it's listed as a second connection, I set it as a "Home" connection.
Problem is, the computer I'm trying to connect to is both on my local, and Hamachi network.
I decided, OK I'll just create a Homegroup on my Hamachi network!
I went to create it, but it appears it created a Homegroup within both networks?

I'm really confused here, I want to create a Homegroup on JUST the Hamachi network right now, but when I go to create one, it's listed on both...

Will I still be able to use Homegroups with Hamachi even outside the local server, because it's a VPN?
