Can a Mac running Windows 7 and a Dell running Windows 8 join the same homegroup?

I can't make the two machines see each other.  Is Homegroup only a Windows 7 capability?  If not,  how do I get them in the same Homegroup?  And, can I name the Homegroup, so I know which one it is?

Troubled,

The brand of computer shouldn't matter at all. As long as they are both running Windows 7 or 8 they should be able to be in the same homegroup.
