Problems sharing after installing Server 2003

Specs: Server 2003
I put Server 2003 on a computer and hooked it up to the network so I could use it for studying for my Network+ certification, but now that it's been on the network (and set with the file server role) my roommates and I haven't been able to get into each others share folders directly. We have two XP PCs and 2 Windows 7 laptops and we use to be able to see each others computer and access them, but now the XP computers can't see any other machines, and the 7 laptops can't get into each other without some sort of password. How would I go about removing whatever happened with the server so that we can all share directly again? thanks.

Did you perhaps create an Active Directory integrated domain on the server?

As for sharing directly, create account on the target computer (the one being connected to) from the remote computers (the ones you'll be connecting from) and use the exact same credentials (username/password) used to logon to the remote computers at bootup. Then, add the accounts to the share and grant them appropriate permissions.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
