mounting network folder in Suse 9.2 (Novell Linux Desktop)

I switched to Suse 9.2 from Ubuntu. In Ubuntu, I was able to mount a network share as a folder (/media/share) - to make it more clear what i'm talking about, here's a link to the directions (htp:// This allowed me to watch video files directly from the share.

Now, i'm in suse, and I've mounted the share using nautilus (file->add location) and I can't play video files from the share any more. How do I do the same thing in Suse that I did in ubuntu?

I can't seem to find the
File->Add Location
option in Nautilus. Using KDE or Gnome? What are the permission on /media/share/?
