    Just to let you know, this "network browser" that Windows has and which seems so built in, is really an external protocol called SMB. Many users believe, understandably, that it's almost built in to the functionality of a LAN, since Windows uses it so intrinsically.
    There is a suite of programs for linux called samba which let you access SMB servers.
    Also, if you run KDE, you can configure "lisa" to let KDE programs see all active computers on you LAN.
