Not at my pc right now and use gnome instead of kde. However I think it should work the same assuming you want to see shares.

Easiest I think would be to right click on a folder and you should see Share as an option on the menu - select and it should take you thru the process of sharing the folder. This will be done via samba so all machines will be able to see the share. 

Best however is to enable nfs between ur linux workstations. I followed a howto on the ubuntu forums a long time ago - look for easy howto :-)

Otherwise do as the geeks do! Command line Ssh and scp!

Subject: [ubuntu-za] Networking two Linux machines

Morning all
 New member here needing help. I've been using Linux since late last year so still a 'newbie'!! I've just built a new Kubuntu machine to replace my old one (K9.04).
 Installation went fine and additional software loaded. Both Linux machines connect to Internet OK and can 'see' my Windows machines on my network with Samba. But neither Linux machines appear under Network but I can ping either machine OK from the other.
 I need help in fixing this please. I think it has to do with shares. Not yet being a command line expert I will need step-by-step details.
 Thanks a lot Guys.

Kind Regards
