How to see the internet connection icon ? How not to see the Windows's folders ?

Hi to all kind people of Linux !
First of all, thanks again to the guys who quickly answered to me, regarding my first question.
But now:
In Windows , in the bottom, at right, it is possible to see the status of the internet connection, with a little ( 2 litle TV) icon that became blue, when bytes passes ( black, when not any byte pass).
Is it possible to have it also in Linux ? and how ? ( if it is not too complicated) !!!!

On my PC, I have XP home and Suse 9.3, perfectly working both.
But , from XP, I cannot see the Suse's folders, and I like it !
Indeed from Suse , I can see all the XP's folders, and I would prefer it wouldn't happen.

Inside my Pc I have XP Home SP2, with many nice programs from HP, that I wouldn't lose , pre - installed ( by the factory), but I have also a CD of XP Pro Sp1, that I buyed a side, in a shop .

Reading a magazine, I think that the solution should be :

1 With the Xp Pro. installation cd, delete Suse's partition.
2 Create a new partition ( what I didn't do before, when I installed Suse).
3 Install XP Pro on the new partition.

At this point, should be correct :
1 Boot from Suse's CD,
2 Delete XP Pro.'s partition
3 After this, I have only xp Home, installed
4 Installing Suse 9.3, on that , deleted partition.

Now the 2 Sistems, Xp and Suse, should be independent : is there some of You that really knows this ???

In any case, BIG Thanks again to You, for Your time, and kindness:
Some of You sent me Yahoo's Messenger's address : as soon as I'll can, I will try to contact You !

tennis, please state your questions more clearly.
Difficult to understand what you're having trouble with.
And if SuSE can see XP partitions - yes
If XP can see SuSE partitions -no
