Connecting a WD My Book World Network Hard drive

I bought a WD My Book World Network Hard drive and are trying to connect it. I am using Suse 11.2 and have it connect wired through a Netgear WGR614 router.

I believe I can use Samba?

It is working under Windows and it connected as network drive.

Anyone can help?

With smbclient installed a file manager like Konqueror or Dolphin (since you mention using SuSE) you should be able to put a location in the adressbar.
In most cases the visible machines running a Windows network showup and you should be able to connect to it.

Thanks, I managed to get it right, I had to use cifs instead of smbfs when mounting.
