you can use
smbclient -L "ip address and share" to have a look
or you can simply mount the windows share onto a part of the linux fs by using mount

Other alternatives include using Konqueror (smb://hostname/) or LinNeighborhood (graphical program to see available shares and mount them for you)

In Nautilus (at least the one included with RH 7.3), type "smb:". You will be presented with a computer listing.
