Since this is SBS, the best thing to do would be to use SharePoint (http://companyweb).  This is already configured and ready to go with a default SBS installation.  There is a folder called "General Documents" which also has a direct link in everyone's My Network Places.  You can put a shortcut to this folder on everyone's desktop via Group Policy if you want to make it easier for them to get to.

Share it.

Then set it so the EVERYONE group has full control (and make sure the share permissions are set so Everyone has full control as well, by default, the share is set to Everyone READ ONLY.

Hi Abs_jaipur,

If the files are located on a SBS server, then you will have to use active directory users if you want to use basic file sharing.  You can always enable the guest account and use that, but that will compromise security on your server.  

The other option would be to share the files using the IIS server and allowing browsing.  Then your users will access the files with Internet Explorer.

Abs_jaipur,

Using the everyone special group will still require authentication via AD.

You are not making sense... please explain what you are trying to do.  Because you said you want to make it available to everyone in your network but you don't want to use AD?  

You COULD use www.groove.net --- but I'm not sure it will do what you want because you haven't really explained the problem with SharePoint yet.
