    Hi,
    I've got an iMac which has three external USB drives attached...all works fine.
    I was wondering if it was possible to access these drives on my Windows Vista laptop via the wireless network.
    For various reasons I still use a Vista laptop for a few jobs (until I save up for a macbook) and I sometimes have to access files that sit on my USB drives attached to the iMac.
    I really don't want to keep plugging and unplugging the USB drives so was hoping that I could access them via the iMac over the Wifi network...
    Anyone help?

    Thanks,

    Mark Morb

    The external drives are NTFS format...I write to them from the Boot Camp partition.
