Need to Setup a Separate Server for a Networked Workgroup

    I have a small business with 7 Windows XP computers connected to a
    Lynksis Cable Modem.

    My goal is to set up a common network server (in a secured area) to
    serve commonly used files to all computers and individuals with the
    proper permissions.

    We don't have a full-time IT person, so I would like to keep this as
    simple as possible. Is there a networked appliance that can be
    configured to appear as a Shared (S) drive? Do I need to buy the
    MicroSoft Server Product and a Server Computer?

    If you want simple then stick to Peer to peer and forget Server software
    unless you need security.
