Samba GUI client


Hey, I'm curious to see which graphical samba clients people are using. I'm trying to find one that I would like.

I've heard komba(??) is good. Are there any clients that will auto-mount shares when I access and auto-unmount shares after I time out on a connection to them? I thought I read somewhere that komba did that. Trouble is, I can't get it to work... Is it a KDE2 app? I'm running SuSE 8.2 with KDE 3.1.1.

And I'll be using it on a network with thousands of shares: my campus network. I'd rather use a graphical client than the console one for a network that large. For a smaller network, console wouldn't be a problem.

LinNeighborhood works great for me. I use the console to edit the preferences, but LinNeighborhood to brows the network.
