Connecting XP to Airport Extreme Hard Drive

My Airport Extreme network is working fine. The problem is that I'm sharing a hard drive which works fine with the Macs but my obligatory Windows XP computer won't see the hard drive. I have it connected to the network wirelessly and it shows as connected in XP Network places but how do I get it to see the hard drive which I have connected directly to the Airport Extreme Base Station?
I've been spinning my wheels here and I'd appreciate any help.

Thanks
Paul

download that, enable airdisks, right click on the task bar icon to enter the Base Station username and password, and you should see the harddrive in your MyComputer window pane where your System and other drives appear.
