sharing drives accross mutiple os's

I currently have a freebsd system running that I have a couple 24/7 deamons running on. This system is system is linked via a router to a windows machine, and soon to be another machine(havent decided what os yet). What I want to do is allow my unix machine to see specific foulders on my windows 98 machine. Would I use samba to do this? And if so, any sugestions on how I would set up the .conf file to point at the windows drive. Actualy, I want to point at some specific high level folders on the windows machine. for general purposes. And all drives on the windows machine for root purposes.
I've read enough to know, and can probably set up for the windows machine to see the unix drives. But I want this to occur both ways.
Any help is most gratefull. Thank you for your time.

SYSTEMD-MACHINE-ID-COMMIT.SERVICE(8)			 systemd-machine-id-commit.service		      SYSTEMD-MACHINE-ID-COMMIT.SERVICE(8)

NAME
systemd-machine-id-commit.service - Commit a transient machine ID to disk SYNOPSIS
systemd-machine-id-commit.service DESCRIPTION
systemd-machine-id-commit.service is an early boot service responsible for committing transient /etc/machine-id files to a writable disk file system. See machine-id(5) for more information about machine IDs. This service is started after local-fs.target in case /etc/machine-id is a mount point of its own (usually from a memory file system such as "tmpfs") and /etc is writable. The service will invoke systemd-machine-id-setup --commit, which writes the current transient machine ID to disk and unmount the /etc/machine-id file in a race-free manner to ensure that file is always valid and accessible for other processes. See systemd-machine-id-setup(1) for details. The main use case of this service are systems where /etc/machine-id is read-only and initially not initialized. In this case, the system manager will generate a transient machine ID file on a memory file system, and mount it over /etc/machine-id, during the early boot phase. This service is then invoked in a later boot phase, as soon as /etc has been remounted writable and the ID may thus be committed to disk to make it permanent. SEE ALSO
