From what you are saying I understand that the hard drive is connected to the mac right? If so you should go to the privacy settings and enable the windows file sharing option.
After that you'll be able to browse through the folders and drives to which you have priviledges.

the network is just 3 Macs that is all that need access. THe problem was that the external drive wasn't formatted properly, but now I am having problems making it a persistant share, how do I make it so that I can connect from an icon on the desktop of any of those computers to this external drive?
