Back up to secondary HDD over network?

I want to back up my powerbook G4 (running 10.4.9) over my wireless network overnight. My wife's computer (a G5 powermac, running 10.3.9) has the perfect space - a second HDD with ample space. I have partitioned that drive to make a lovely home for my powerbook data, but... I can't see that HDD over the network.

So I guess this isn't really a Superduper question as such, but it's one that I'm sure many users will have encountered. How can you access a secondary HDD over a network? I can certainly see the G5, and can log into accounts on it, but can't "see" anything that is not on the same HDD as the G5's startup disk. If I can't see it, I can't back up to it.

Is there a bit of OSX kung fu I can use? Or do I have to rethink my entire backup strategy?

Thanks in advance,
Paul G.
