You are right, we have heard this one a number of times.. Try using the search function next time, you will get your answer a lot faster.

The first link should do, but there is more information in the following links as well. There are a lot more, these are just some of them. Use the search function for more information

I am still checking for you but this URL claims this little app will do it for you.

Will report back when I find more.

Another URL that recomends that application.

EDIT: just installed and ran it on my iMac G5 with external 160GB WD and it worked perfectally. Be sure to check Windows sharing and Windows SMB sharing by clicking +. Hope it does the job for you. Does for me.
