In order to see them in the windows-nw-tree and to access them from windows,
you have to install SAMBA.
With this tool you can access folders on the linux machine as if this were
folders on windows-machines.
Samba is part of SuSE-Linux, just install it and configure /etc/smb.conf (or
/etc/samba/smb.conf depending on the SuSE-Verison you use). Also define
START_SMB="yes" in /etc/rc.config. Then start it with "rcsmb start" et
voila: You now should see you shared folders on the linux-machine(s).
