Theres a piece of software out called "scsi share" it allows you to share a scsi drive over an ethernet network (or localtalk if you dont mind the speed). It will even allow you to share things like scanners and scsi printers. OR you could just set up appleshare to automount that drive on startup. but thats kinda ugly and slows the computers down noticeably.
