Build up a LAN

Im totally new to Linux and wanted to build up our LAN-Network haere. The others are Windows XP and Windows 98. And weve got a router. My problem now is, that Ive got absolutely no Idea, where I can find the other computers in KDE. I mean like in Windows the Network connections and so. Where can I make such things in KDE (using SuSE 8.2)

You might want to go to Freshmeat and do some searching. I used LinNeighborhood a long time ago, and it seemed up to the task. I never experimented much with it though... I got rid of all the computers running Windows. It may be improved, or there might be something new.

I think you may have to mount the network directories into the file system or something like that

You first need to install samba client utilities. Then you can look up your Windows computer's shares. Many programs uses samba clients to access Windows shares.

I use xfsamba that came with xfce window manager. Its like LinNeighborhood but gives more information to the user.
