    I have two external drives on my iMac, since they store my most of my music/movies/TV shows, I'd like to be able to share them with my Windows machine as well. On Windows, I log into my Mac for file sharing as my normal Mac account(also an Admin account), and I can see every thing in my home directory, but that's it. OS X's file sharing options don't seem to be overly robust, or either I'm just not seeing the options. Is there a way to share these external drives? I'd really like to map them each as network drives on my Windows machine.

    Thanks, that's the kind of thing I was looking for. I really didn't want to muck around with Samba configuration files or something.
