Please tell us what version of Vector you are using. And are you trying to access other Linux computers, or Windows? Is the LAN wired or wireless? Are you able to access the internet using Linux?

Good setup  :)

You should be able to see your win boxes from VL as it is.
Go to windows computer, make sure at least one folder is shared. Next, click "start" then "run". Type in cmd and hit enter. In the box that pops up, type ipconfig and hit enter. You should see some information which includes the IP address. Take a note of the IP address

Now go to VL, open Konqueror (file manager). Hit F6 for the address bar and type smb://IP_address_of_win_box then hit enter. If that works, you can then make a bookmark in Konqueror which makes it easy to open it in the future.
