    Yes, download and install webmin: . This makes configuring samba much, much easier. It has a nice GUI for samba and just about everything else you need to administer on your linux box.

       For your question,
    > "Browse" the network neighborhood like my windows box does
    There is a software can do it:
    xSMBrowser 3.4.0

       By the way, RedHat has provide a GUI /usr/bin/redhat-config-smaba to let you easy config SAMBA as well.

    Good luck,

    It's /usr/bin/redhat-config-samba. Sorry for the typo.

    Well, the key issue is
    > want my linux box to be able to "Browse" the network neighborhood like my windows box

    So "nautilus" which comes with RedHat would be easier.
    Other alternative is xSMBrowser ( )

    For configure Samba, /usr/bin/redhat-config-samba which comes with Redhat is easier and simple.
    Other alternative is webmin ( ) which is very good all-in-one configuration GUI for a newbie.
