Sharing a shared drive from another network

Server 2008 connected to one network and old NT box on another network.  These are joined in the server 2008 box through 2 NICs, one for the new network and the other is connected to the old network.  A share was setup on the new server 2008 to the old NT box.  How do I get the folks on the new network to use files on the old NT box directly through the 2008 Server box?  The authentication is of course different on 2008 than on the older NT box so I don't think passthrough auth will work or can even be implemented, can it?

I am not sure this is possible.  It sounds to me like you have mapped a drive on the 2008 box that points to a share on the NT box.  Windows doesn't let you share a mapped volume.  

One workaround would be to use the Windows 2008 box as a router to join the two networks (Internet Connection Sharing) and mapping a drive on each of the client computers pointing at the original share on the NT box.  See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc770507.aspx for info on ICS.

A little more research pointed this out.  There are security problems with this as well because the passthrough will not work.  Authentication might be possible through the client but that is not an acceptable solution in this case.   Your answer is correct so the points are duly awarded.  We have taken a more stable route in this situation.  Thanks for your time to this question.
