    No.  Try it.  Doesn't work.  You'd think it should, but it doesn't.  Works for TCP/IP basic networking (Ping, FTP, Telnet, etc.  But not for netbios browsing.

    How do you want to? For file sharing?  I'd suggest using Samba -

    Use Linneighborhood. This tools allows you to easily configure your Samba Client and browse you Windows Network. I'm not sure if it is part of the Red Hat distro, but you should be able to find in different versions on the web.
