You need to give the users permission to access both the folder and the drive. You do this in the Security tab of the Properties dialog.

they must have or be part of a group that has at least read permissions. remember deny always overrides allow

Before I make some suggestions, I would like to know whether your machines are either on domain or workgroup.

If on workgroup:
-Let all PCs maintain the same workgroup name.
-Make sure all network PCs maintain a unique account with Admin right(for support and authentications) and individual PC's user account with standard user right.
-Map drive with either IP address or PC name(for security reason make sure you hide drive with $ sign).

If on domain:
-Map drive accordingly and if there is any issue add users account in user account option of control panel or do a group policy for local admins on network PC.

I hope this help.

Good luck
