So I decided to add a DSM G600 to my network to simplify transfering files between the computers in my house. Maybe some other day I will write an essay on installing a DSMG600. Or even better why you should always update firmware in all network devices. For now I will tell you how to access the NAS.
First Make sure you have Samba installed.
Second It is helpful to install SMBC which is a commandline gui for Samba but it can easily browse your network and find the NAS.

Now you have required programs installed. Go into SMBC. Find your network. My DSMG600 used WORKGROUP. And the unit I named storage. So I got //WORKGROUP/storage/HDD_a and there was my NAS.
Using that information, I opened Konqueror. In the address bar I typed "smb://WORKGROUP" This showed me a directory storage. When I clicked on that the address bar changed to "smb://storage" and I went into the HDD_a directory. So this gave me a final address of "smb://storage/HDD_a".
Now book mark the directory. Or make a shortcut. This is the quickest way to use your NAS. But I think this might be due to the fact the DSMG600 has linux as its OS and probably running SAMBA. Hope this helps.
