Use the setting in the WSUS policy settings
Computer\Windows Components\Windows Update\Target group name for this computer

You can either create a separate GPO for Laptops and Workstations with all the
setting you need for each.

or

Create a GPO for XP with all the settings for all sub OUs and then have other
GPO for Loptops OU etc which supply just the different settings such as
groupname etc.

You decide which, is it easier to have central setting for everything and
overwrite these with the exception or just have totally separate GPOs and have
to make change in all if something changes.
I would definitely have WSUS setting in a GPO or their own and not added to
Workstation Settings or Laptop Settings. It is too hard to maintain otherwise.

I have done Computer\Windows Components\Windows Update\Target group
name for this computer
all the groups but still the same - not populating the groups as the
ones in Group Policy.

I believe you should specify Workstations and Laptops respectively, i.e., ignore
the nesting entirely and only specify the last component. I may be
misremembering, I don't do this routinely - but it's worth a try. :-)
