If all you want to do is share files, why pay for the WS03 license?
There are a plethora of setups to accommodate your needs.

Here's one:  Contribs SME Server, http://contribs.org/modules/news/

Nice and simple solution.

        |  
        |  I have a mobile unit of servers that are basically 
        |  file storage for wifi laptops. The people that use 
        |  the systems want to push a button and have 
        |  everything work. Don't want a domain, don't want 
        |  passwords, just want a central file system that 
        |  everyone can rwxd. So I fired up MMC and added 
        |  Security Analysis and Configuration... and turned on 
        |  anonymous access to shares, enabled blank passwords 
        |  for non-console users, enabled guest, etc. I set 
        |  guest password blank, and theoretically i should 
        |  brose to \\unsecuredserver\sharename and not be 
        |  prompted for a password right? WRONG! No matter what 
        |  combination of Local Sec Policies I set, I am always 
        |  promted for a password. I was sure there was a way 
        |  around it, but none that I have found. I ALWAYS have 
        |  to type guest, and apparently this is too difficult 
        |  for some people. <shrug> Any ideas?
