Samba GUI client help/other issues


Hi,
I'm running Fedora Core 3 and Gnome on that, and just installed Linneighborhood and Gnomba, both of which are clients for Samba shares. I was actually looking for a utility like sharescan for Linux, and I think Gnomba kinda does the job (Scans for windows shares within an ip range).
Now the thing is that Gnomba complains when I try to unmount; the error message it gives is this: Unable to find smbunmount. This is really weird... I got smbmount when I installed samba rpm from http://www.samba.org, but amazingly I do NOT have smbunmount.
I've searched around, but to no avail. Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem?

Also, if you know of any other GUI client better than Gnomba, recommend please.

One last question: how do I configure Gnomba so that it builds a whole tree instead of just giving me the machine names of the computers with shares enabled. I want it just like sharescan (sharescan builds a file/directory list of all available shares within an ip range).
Regards,

Another SAMBA configuration GUI tool is SWAT. It runs in browsers.

Okya, I'll try that.
This is totally off-topic, but does Gnome in Mandrake look different from Gnome in Feodora 3 (if you have same resolution etc.) I just want to know that my shift to Fedora was justified (the Gnome in Fedora looks way better than the KDE in Mandrake. I want to know that had I kept my original Mandrake 10, and insatlled Gnome on it, would it have looked the same as the one I have right now). The default fonts and colors are simply amazing, and way better than my Mandrake10/KDE's.
The fonts look a bit HAZY though; i've heard it has got something to do with PROPREITY HINTING, but not exactly sure. How do I turn that on? Cause I have a windows partition and have legitimately bought it. My next questions:

How do I improve fonts in Fedora Core 3/Gnome (haven't altered it even a bit, so I'm talking about default fonts). Should I download freetype386?

Regards,

Please don't mind if this question has been asked before/is stupid. Cause first of all, serach fonuctino isn't working, and second of all, i'm a nooblet.

It really depends on you to think what's nicer. Here is a screen shot of GNOME in Mandrake: http://users.telenet.be/fhimpe/mandrake/pics/gnome1.png . I think maybe you should go for freetype386 and try it out, if you like. Y=There's no harm and you can return to the old fonts if you like.
