Um, I don't think there is a specific application for browsing the network.
Try mounting the filesystem you want to browse to an empty directory (do "mkdir /remote" or something similar). I think you can mount it using "mount -t smbfs \\\\computername\\directory".

Workgroups and Linux pc's with Samba.
