Can I connect a Mac OS 9 to a network with Windows workstations, and share files and printers?

Hi, I have a Mac 0S 9.0 system, and I want to connect it to a LAN with windows workstations.  My question is, will I be able to share printers on the mac with the network, as well as share hard drives, etc?  The workstations are using XP home. XP pro, Win ME and Win 98.  It is just a standard peer-to-peer network.
 Thanks,
 mLsnader

Macs connect seamlessly to windows networks now, all you have to do is use the Mac browser in Finder, Go - connect to server, and it will find all windows devices including printers and hard drives that are shared in windows.  Be wary though, Home edition of XP is crippled in its networking features, you really need XP Pro to do networking correctly.  You might be able to get Home to share files and printers with a Mac, I only use Pro for this because it works very well.
