hey everyone,
I have three computers, a desktop and two laptops [G4 and Sony]. I want to connect the external hard drive to my desktop and have them accessible over the wireless on other computers on the network. Has anyone tried this sort of thing before?

Not a hard thing to do at all. You just need to map the drive in Windows on your Sony laptop and grant a share on the desktop for the external drive, not a problem at all. For the G4 it will just be a matter of connecting to the shared drive by going to Connect to Network entering the IP address of your desktop, entering your username and password if required, and the external drive if it has been shared will show up as one of the drives you have the option to connect to.
