I'm looking for a graphical network browser similar to Places:Network in the full gnome ubuntu installation. I have a very minimal xfce installation. Is there a package/s that allows me to do this?

I'm not sure of an easy way to do this but the figures im giving you exclude any cached memory and are from the value on the -/+ buffers/cache line.
On both systems as well this is when swap usage...
I'm not sure but i think i heard XDM doesn't support automatic login?
No they were both installed using the minimal install disc with 32-bit os's. All i have installed on each of them are xorg, gdm and xfce4.
