Banking Industry - Linux for networking?


Hey guys,
Forgive the newbie question, but here's my problem:
My coworker and I are trying to introduce LInux to small town banks in the area, but we need an easy way to network machines using GUI. There doesn't seem to be one except Linneighborhood, and it doesn't work that well. Why?

We've tried the following distros:
RH9 - We love it, but our programmers say NO.
Mandrake 10 - We don't love it
FREEBSD - More UNIX than Linux, and we don't wanna program a GUI
SUSE 9.1 - We love it, but can't get Linneighborhood to work on it

We're using SUSE 9.1 PERSONAL because we wanted to test it. Perhaps we need the professional ed.?

Anyway, we cannot mount any shares using Linneighborhood. We CAN mount them using smbmount //servername/share ...etc.

But this isn't an option. The users need a simple, easy to use GUI that will let them browse network shares on both a Windows or Linux network, on workstations or servers. Any ideas?

fedora 1-2 has already a GUI tool to browse network. u can try it. i use fedora 2 and GUI is better than redhat 9 and fedora 1. fonts are very good.
also u can add some lines in /etc/fstab file to mount network drivers. so it will mount network drivers at startup.

fedora is a 3rd party app like SMB4K & Linneighborhood, or is it built into SuSE?

Another problem...Using SMB4K I can now browse my Windows network, and even map certain drives. However, I cannot access my other LInux machine over SMB4K. I can see it if I do a search for the name, but once I try to connect, it simply says that it could not connect. Is there a way to verify that my other Linux pc is out there?
