Same User Account on Domain accessing data share from 5 computers

I have a 2003 Domain at a Dentist Office. All Xp Pro Machines. The 5 Computers are all the same and have a mapped network drive to a data share on the Server. The program Genesis all 5 Operatories use at the same time. (Dentist Software)

They all log in with the user "Back". Will the server error out if the same user is accessing the data at the same time 5 times or is there a setting I need to make sure I have enabled?

No  as long as the software is multi-user and does suitable file or record locking within the application then it is unlikely to matter that 5 people are using it with the same windows user name however this is hardly very good security or tracability and your users should have individual accounts for that reason if nothing else.
