How to share an external USB drive over network in OS X?

I have an external USB drive mounted on my Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" box. I want to share a folder on this volume to another OS X computer over LAN. How is it possbile? If I simply enable the built-in File Sharing service and share the directory (using the AFP protocol), it won't be accessible on the other computer.

Actually if you enable sharing with SMB protocol, you can go to Finder's Go >> "Connect to server" and use smb://YourMacName. This way the shared drive will appear in the list. Sorry but I don't know how to use AFP protocol.
