Network Neighborhood for Linux


I've now got a connection to a server at work from home via dialup and VPN Client. Both client and server are running RH 8.0
(And the server is running Samba, though i guess that is irrelevant here since I'm talking about two RH 8.0 machines.)

From the client, I can ping the server, but I don't know how else to see it.
I see this thing called LinNeighborhood.
It appears the LinNeighborhood is only up to RH5.1, not too promising.

So....
Is LinNeighborhood the way to go?
(both with respect to the tool itself and the version discrepancy)

If not, what can be used?

Thanks!

LinNeighborhood is ok, but it's merely a frontend to the smbmnt/smbumount tools. Once you have the remote directories mounted you can see them in whatver file browser you want to use if you direct it to the mount point you created.

Isn't Samba irrelevent since its 2 linux machines talking?
(In which case then LinNeighborhood would not be of use in this situation either)
Or is it the case the Samba is needed for 2 linux machines to communicate?

uh oh, it just occurred to me.
smbmnt/smbumount are not part of Samba.
correct?
