We just started using record types to divide our divisions in SF. I wanted to know when setting up Workflow rules do I need to now specify which record type to apply this to?

How can I go back retroactively adding record type ids to all existing WFs? Good thing is all WFs in existence for now only belong to one record type ID for each Object.

    If you don't, it will just fire for all record types of that object. – Robin De Bondt Aug 12 '15 at 14:10

You don't need to know the Record Type Id when changing your workflow rules. All you need to do is add a new Evaluation Criteria and specify what record type it is for, using the developer name of the record type. See below for an example:
