    I am trying to share files between my PowerMac G5 and PC.

    The tricky part is that I want to access my Mac from the PC and right now I can only "see" the primary folders on my Mac. I also have a second hard drive on my Mac that want to share.

    Does anybody know how to configure the second hard drive so it can be shared?

    im presuming that both harddrives are formatted as mac os extended (jounrnaled) which is a mac only format. windoze computers cannot read them. that is unless you have "macdrive" (have to pay) you could reformat your drive into fat32 if you wanted both to be able to read and write to the drives....

    They can if the disk is shared over a network, which is what I think the OP wants to do.

    Easiest way is to use Sharepoints I think.
