In my house, we have a BlackArmor Seagate external hard drive (1TB) hooked up to our network. I am trying to use Linux on a machine to transfer files to the external hard drive, but I am getting stuck on the "sharing" portion of the network. I don't know how Linux works with networks and workgroups, but I would like to be able to access other devices. All the other devices on our network are Windows XP, Vista or 7. The external hard drive is running a Windows NT 4.9 Server, so I don't know if I can use other OSes on it.

If accessing the external hard drive is not possible in this case, would it be possible to connect directly to another computer?
