thanks for taking this up.
I tried it already for a few days - without success. However, even with your instructions I was not very successful.
When I press the "Autosetup..." button and restart the lisa demon and the smbfs demon, all I get is an error message that "lan://localhost" could not be found in the tree.
What it does is, it enters my own IP address in the different fields. However, if I understand it correctly, it should put in a netmask that should be used for Windows hosts to scan.
However, when I enter the netmask myself, the error message disappears but then by entering "lan:/" in the address field causes Konqueror to crash!
Could you please post a detailed example of your network configuration?
Thanks in advance,

easier than LinNeighborhood.
Make sure Samba and LISa are installed from the CD. Go into YAST2, system,
run level editor and make sure smbfs is running and lisa are running. If
not, set them for run level 3 and 5 and start them from the run level
In control panel, Network, select Windows shares, put in your logon and
In control panel, Network, select Lan Browsing, set up the Lisa Daemon using
the guided setup with all defaults. I put in the name of the DNS server on
the first tab of the Lan browsing dialog box, it automatically came up with
my IP address and mask.
After doing the setup, then click the "Apply" button.
Then go to Konqueror and in the address box type in "lan:/" It should then
show all of the network computers as IP address.
I then pinged the computers by name, got their ip address, clicked on the IP
address in Konqueror, then the SMB foldler. I then bookmarked that, then
changed the bookmark name to the computer name.
Hope this helps.

Would you be willing to post exactly how you got it to work? That LISa
program is a little confusing...
