    The folderbrowserdialog is the correct choice.

    I have one, in my application, and i can browse other computers over the LAN. (windows 7)
    If the network option is not there, you might be able to get onto the network with your
    dialog, by setting the root folder, or selected path.

    FolderBrowserDialog fbd = new FolderBrowserDialog();
    //fbd.RootFolder = Environment.SpecialFolder.NetworkShortcuts;
    //fbd.SelectedPath = @"\\computername\folder";
    fbd.ShowDialog();

    Are the folders shared out on the other machine? Can you view them in explorer?
