If you're using Gnome (2.14 was finally good enough for me to dump KDE,
which I used since pre-1.0) there is a very easy way to do it.  Click on
"Places" and then "Connect To Server".   Select the type from the
"Service type" list (samba, ssh, webdav, etc) and then fill out the
other fields as required.  It then shows up as an icon on the desktop,
and can be accessed from any Gnome application (including OpenOffice) on
the side.  It's very easy to use.
