Ok, So i am buying a 2TB external hardrive for my mac.
This one to be exact.
http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/?ie=UTF8&frombrowse=1&asin=B002QEBMCI&AFID=Performics_dealspl.us&LNM=Primary

and I want to make it so i can store movies, music and tv shows (avi's and mp3's mostly) and allow my brother who has an xbox360 4gb slim with built in wifi and my parents who will likely use a ps3 or there hp windows computer to get the content from the 2tb hard drive.


So i need someone to tell me how to make it so other computers in our house (all windows computers by the way, except my imac), xbox and ps3 to be able to get to this content and play it. All these devices are on a wifi network in our house so all this would be wireless.

Can someone recommend a good program i can use to turn my imac into something like this?

Thanks to anyone who can help.
