Share external hd?

Is it possible to share an external USB hard drive, like a printer, over a workgroup network between windows7 and windowsXP computers?
How is it done?
Thanks in advance

I have one shared off of a server at work, that's used to back up digital photos. You would share it the same way you would an internal drive. Right clicking on the drive should give you the options.
