I am trying to set up my server 2003 as a file server for my local network. (there is no AD in place)

When browsing to the shares from other computers on the LAN, they are prompted for a username and password. If I input a valid one, then I have no problem browsing the shared resources.

Ideally however, I would like the computers to be able to access these resources WITHOUT entering any username/password. Is there any way to do this with server 2003? (without implementing AD)

It sounds like you have 2003 just set up as a stand alone server...
Just a bit like a PC...
When you share out a folder on the server ...
go to the properties of the share...
then into premissions...
you can add users to access the folders...
click find now... this will give you a list of all user accounts on the server..
in there you should see anomous users...
give them full access to the folders..
This should sort it 4 you
