That explains, I suppose, why I have to wait 5 minutes every time I want to browse the windows computers! (I think), from Linux, which seems to work fine in a nice GUI (file manager style) that supports drag n drop. Only problems are its slow to find a computer, and I would like to be able to see a linux box from the windows computers.
I would also like to see one linux box from another one, in the same way.
Well thanks for the info, I'll look into some of the things you mention. (e.g. WINS, whatever that is)
