Since youre running an old OS youll need to buy Dave from thursby systems. I'd say blow the bucks on getting OS X though. Native windows networking support plus other stuff.

Nothing other than setting it up to share.

Something gotta be wrong here... The Mac is retreving an IP adress from the DHCP-server, but I can´t get contact. Do I have to install som Appletalk-protocol on the PC? Or just normal PC file sharing? It´s sure just a little error here...

Are you using Dave? Otherwise, youre not going to be able to connect.

Yes, I´m using DAVE. But now it´s working. It was just an error in the username settings. ;)
