Use konqueror

configure smb.conf properly and open konqureor there u can find network folders open it there in the address bar u can find smb or otherwise u can enter smb:/ip address of ur windows machine.

well there are 2 things here.

One is to to use SMB-client and Second is SMB-server.
When you are accessing windows machines on your Linux box.. you need not configure samba server that you do with smb.conf


Also make sure that your konqueror browser should have proper support for SMB protocol.. If not then try using some other browsers from samba.org or you can try using smbmount or smbclient from the command line.

As I mentioned you can look for some browsers with that support to show you the systems in the workgroup or domain

Network browser in Gnome supports it. Lookout for other browsers from samba.org

I am having the exact same problem that you are describing. I have even installed the kernel module to get SMBFS support back in the kernel, but neither Konqueror nor any command line utility will resolve to the correct IP addresses of the machines. I can manually specify the IP address in Konqueror or otherwise, but the hostname will not resolve.

>Running openSUSE 10.2 and trying to access a mixed network of Windows XP pro, XP home, and one Win2000 machine.

Login into gnome and go to the Gnome menu and you will get this option..

Also proper support in konqueror can also be an issue

I have this problem in my LAN, I want to connect a Ubuntu Linux box with an existing workgroup featuring 2 XP Home boxes and a Win98SE box (soon to become a second Ubuntu box). I can get the Internet from either Linux box, but neither Linux box will see other LAN clients even with the domain/workgroup name set right and SMB and SMB4K installed and run.
