I need to install sql server enterprise edition in server in windows 2008.

What is the difference between a domain, a workgroup, and a homegroup?[^]

Domain is a collection of computers and supporting hardware that shares the same security database using Active Directory. Grouping the equipment in this manner allows you to set up centralized security and administration. Conversely, a workgroup has no centralized security or administration. Each server or workstation is configured independently and locally for all security and administration settings.

Thanks Abhi
Your machine is ether in a workgroup or in a domain. It can not be in both.
There is no difference in installation of SQL Server, but there is in accessing it. You will not be able to connect to the server remotely using trusted connection if you are not in a domain.
