    sharing external usb drives over network

    I have a mac mini with 3 usb drives hooked too it. I have all my mp3s and movies on these drives. I want to share them across my network to 2 other macs and one windows vista pc. With the macs it is pretty easy to do over iTunes but the Visita is the one I am having trouble with. Do I need a program like share points to do this or am I able to share these drives in Leopard alone? I do not want to have to use iTunes on the Vista PC to do this. I want to be able to use the media center on this computer so I would need to share the drive and be able to mount it on the vista pc.

    Thank you for your help
