I am building a small (6 student workstations plus several administrators) network for a small college campus.  We have just purchased Windows Server 2003, Standard Ed., but have not installed it yet.

I want to isolate the students so they can not get to any of the administration files, but at the same time, they need to access some student files on the server.  

I am new to this; my question is: do I use a domain or workstation approach?  I don't particularly want the students or administrators to have to login to the server each time they want to access a set of files.
