As a recent Mac convert I was hoping that someone can answer a question for me on sharing an external HD between my Macs.

I have a G3 running Panther and a Macbook pro running Leopard. I use the G3 as my iTunes box and what I would like to do is buy a new external drive, plug it into the G3 and move my iTunes library over. In addition I would also like to be able to access the drive from my MacBook via the G3 ( the G3 is wired into a network switch ).

Now I know I can use the drive on the G3 for iTunes, but what I am not sure about is if/how I can access the drive from my macbook.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
