There may be better ways but I'd do it like this.

One possibility would be to run an ftp server on any one of these machines, then anyone on your network could access the files with their favorite ftp client.  

If FTP presents a security problem of some sort and/or you'd prefer a finder like look to the experience try NFS.  Turn one of the PC's into an nfs server and access it from the Mac with NFS client software from either Intercon Systems or Thursby Software.

It is also possible to turn the Mac into an nfs server but the software was a rough beta when I used it a few months back.

There is another way that is a bit cleaner, if you have an NT server running on this network it is capable of offering services or Macintosh.  Both PC's and Macs can access a specially configured NTFS partition.
