How do I view other workgroups / domains?
When I click on Networks, it just shows systems in my current workgroup.

In 2K/XP, I could click on something to view the entire network, allowing me
to click on other workgroups and domains.

How do I do that in Vista?

I can connect to the other systems fine via IP or directly typing in their
name, but I can't list their workgroup/domains.

In the right pane of the Network, you should have Name, Category, Workgroup, Network Location. The Workgroup is the place for select the domain or workgroup.
