    you could do some recursive find commands and what not but that will beat up your disks pretty good - is there a specific goal in mind here or are you just looking to see who has the porn shared on the network?

    There once was the findsmb command, which would list all SMB nodes available through broadcasting. It's not shipped with the samba-client distrib in RH8, though. I think nmblookup "*" can do about the same thing, though. It's probably documented in the manpage for nmblookup. Then you'll just receive a recursive directory listing through smbclient and grep -i \.jpg$, I guess.
    I don't know how good you are. Are these pointers enough, or do you want me to write the whole thing for you?
