"KExplorer offers the same functionality as Windows Explorer and has the same look and feel. It even integrates a Network Neighborhood from where you can see all the Windows machines on your network. But, for this you must have the client package of Samba installed."

"Now we'll proceed with the installation of KExplorer from this month's CD. Login as root and create a directory pcq in the /opt directory. Mount the CD and copy the file kexplorer.tgz from the cdrom/linux/Kexplorer directory to the /opt/pcq directory."

"Open a terminal window from within KDE and type kruiser in it. This will fire up KExplorer for Linux. If you get an error message like error in "loading shared libraries: libjpeg.so.6", type the following in the terminal window:

cp /usr/lib/libjpeg.so /usr/lib/libjpeg.so.6

Type kruiser again after this."
