Specs: win xp pro, 3 ghz - 1g ram
i am helping a school with their tech. i know some about computers, but not much about servers. anyway, the server they have is not actually a server. it's a xp pro machine that was installed by a local company that allows students and faculty to save, retrieve, and edit files that are saved to it from any computer in the building.
all computers only had an admin type login. i wanted to put a limited account on each machine to protect it from students and other users. after doing that i found that i could not see the server. i can only see and use server when logged in as the original admin account.
where can i go on the server to make changes necessary in order for all client login accounts to use the server?

client computers are all dell dimension 3000/xp pro

server is also xp pro partitioned hard drive - 240g total

thanks

all user accounts need to exist on the "server" as well as their passwords need to match between the workstation they logon to and the server.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
