Just make sure that your Win 7 is joined as member of your existing networks workgroup, do not try to use the Win 7 HomeGroup it only works with other Win 7 machines

It can take a while for your network to update and show a new member of a workgroup but once it does you should then be able to access shared folders on the other pcs
