Would it be possible to - when the tab is first activated - run the "Other 
packages needs to be installed dialog" (don't know what it's called but some 
application such as Amarok uses it for codecs etc.
A more simple approach would to show a short explanation pointing to a wiki 
page that explains how Samba and knetwork-filesharing is installed. Otherwise 
many people wouldn't even know that the possibility is there.
