PC-Mac SCSI data exchange question

My second question concerns data transfer between (Windoze) PCs and Macs. I got a Power Macintosh 7200 (with Mac OS 8.0) which I would like to move some data to (approx. 3 GB); filesharing over Ethernet doesn't work without additional software since the Mac doesn't understand SMB/CIFS and W98/2k (not Server)don't understand enough AFS. "Web Sharing" only supports the opposite direction (PC can read data from the Mac) unless I'm missing something.
So what I'm left with is pushing the stuff onto an idle 4GB SCSI disk that I can then hang off the Mac. Unfortunately I couldn't get an idea how to accomplish this: if I format the disk on the PC, the Mac will come up with "Uninitialized Volume". Initializing the volume as "DOS 4GB" doesn't work, the same dialog comes up again after I restart and going back to the PC I can even still read the contents! I tried one FAT32 partition (primary) as well as two FAT16 drives inside an extended partition.
Thanks in advance, yours sincerely
