If I understand your problem correctly you would like to change your current workgroup from whatever it is now on your linux box to one of y our choosing that matches the windows workgroup thus allowing you to access and see network shares within the workgroup.
Edit this file: /etc/samba/smb.conf
replace under the [global] section
workgroup = WhateverYouChoose
After saving that file you will need to restart samba. Two ways to do that depending on your system.
sudo service samba restart //this should work for you on debain based system
/etc/rc.d/rc.samba restart //this probably will not work on debain based system.
I hope this helps you.
