Network Browser


is there a graphical network browser so its more like a windows based environment where u have all the workgroups listed and when u go into it it has all hosts or something along those lines. just asking as im going to a LAN party. and it would be a nuissance to browse it the old way.

I think that Konqueror also has an "easy to use" interface for this. I've never tried it, but maybe also look into Lin Neighborhood, I'm sure I have the name wrong, but it's close to that. It might also be what you are looking for... At this LAN party, will everyone there be using SAMBA, is this an integrated OS LAN party, or what?

Cool
