To an extent.... You still have to manually browse for _ftp._tcp or
_whatever._whatever to find services. Unless there is a linux tool that
automagically locates all the services on the local network (Gnome 2.8
doesn't pick every service up, and the sarge version is mostly disabled).

For those not in the know, Bonjour is the horrible name for Apple's
incarnation of the IETF thang that is zeroconf. Was calles Rendezvous, but
someone got shitty over a trademark.
