When I have several macs on my LAN, I can easily go to my system preferences under 'sharing', click 'file sharing',
and my laptop can then access the hard drive on the other mac machine (IMAC or whatever).

Now I have a workstation running suse 11.1. I want to access it's hard drives from my mac osx laptop, again both are on my LAN.

Is there an easy way to get this going? I am finding things like /etc/init.d/atalk that use netatalk, but it doesn't seem near as obvious to get going as setting up mac to mac connection.
