Homegroup on Windows 7 is not the same as Workgroup

This is an exclusive Windows 7 club as you see here.

I have shared folders on my wireless connected Windows XP SP3 computer but I cannot access them from my Windows 7. However Windows 7 computer belongs to my workgroup computers on Windows XP SP3. I can access files in the shared folders of my Windows 7 on the XP Computer.

However I managed to get the Remote Desktop functionality and can access my XP SP3 through this remote connection.

Looks like Homegroup is not the same as Workgroup.
