How to surf network?

First of all, I am a newbie, so here goes...

I've gotten Mandrake 9.2 running, I have the ethernet up and all that. I can see the rest of the network through LinNeighbourhood... Now here's my question.

In W*ndows, I can easily surf the network in windows explorer, no problem. However in Linux, it appears that to look at each remote share, I have to individually mount and unmount them all - is there an easier way I can browse through a network?

I hope I've put that question clearly...

Thanks alot for any and all help!

Are you using Samba?

If so, try just typing smb:: in the location bar of your favourite filemanager.

or xsmbrowser, it seems to be more along the lines of what your looking for, it is really a nice frontend for samba (i think)
