Network Neighbourhood in Linux Samba?


Is there any way to browse the computers connected to a windows network via samba in linux, without knowing IPs/host names, similar to Network Neighbourhood/My Network Places in windows?

A little bit uglier, but you could also use "nmap" and grep its output for smb ports.

So basically a 'no' on that one... even if it did show other computers (which it doesnt), I would still have to type the IP into smbmount -- and even then would have no idea of what the name of the shared folders on that computer were....

Any ideas?
