If you want to browse a Windows - Network with samba and kde, just open Konqueror in KDE and type
You`ll then hopefully see all workgroups in your network and will be able to browse them.
I usually have a link to konqueror with that option on my desktop ( Link to program, command : konqueror smb:/ ).
Anyway, do you use kde?
If so you have to use kdm as loginmanager to shut the pc down from kde menu.
Just comment the section about gdm out in /etc/rc.d/rc.4:
# rc.4 This file is executed by init(8) when the system is being
# initialized for run level 4 (XDM)
# Version: @(#)/etc/rc.d/rc.4 2.00 02/17/93

echo "Starting up X11 session manager..."
# Try to use GNOME's gdm session manager:
#if [ -x /usr/bin/gdm ]; then
#exec /usr/bin/gdm -nodaemon
# Not there? OK, try to use KDE's kdm session manager:
if [ -x /opt/kde/bin/kdm ]; then
exec /opt/kde/bin/kdm -nodaemon
# If all you have is XDM, I guess it will have to do:
if [ -x /usr/X11R6/bin/xdm ]; then
exec /usr/X11R6/bin/xdm -nodaemon
echo "Hey, you don't have KDM, GDM, or XDM. Can't use runlevel 4 without"
echo "one of those installed."
# All done.
would look like that
Hop it helps and good luck.
