My Windows XP won't let me change the workgroup name; the network ID wizard is disabled as is the 'change' button under network ID. How I can enable it?

Best bet is that you are not logged in as a user with administrative rights.

That makes we wonder, I don't ever recall anyone accidentally booting into a standard user in a workgroup. . . –  surfasb Aug 5 '11 at 6:46
    
I login with a administrator user –  asker Aug 7 '11 at 15:14
    
Can you verify that your user is part of the Administrators group? –  bbatman Sep 4 '11 at 15:09

It doesn't sound that your user is part of the Administrators group.

HOW TO VERIFY IF YOU ARE AN ADMIN ON THE PC:
Log on to windows
Right click on your start menu
If you see "Open all users or Explor all users" means you have admin rights.
