You mean like "network neighbourhood" on the NT machines?
Have a look at your favorite samba mirror:

There you should find some GUIs

You should install the samba package of your distributor.
You can use nfs instead of samba, i think, but IIRC you can't browse with
this, so to have something like "network neighbourhood", you need samba and
a GUI for it.
