To restore user rights (NTFS user rights), you just use a checkbox in the restore options. I believe the checkbox is called "Restore Security" (see http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/263559.htm for reference).

To restore shares you will have to restore registry key SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Shares. If you didn't export this key from the registry, then the only way is to restore the complete System State of the server at the time the shares still existed. Be aware of the consequences of this, for example should this be a domain controller. If there are a limited amount of shares you may just want to recreate them manually.
See http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/240732.htm (the Windows 2000 part) and http://support.microsoft.com/kb/125996/ for reference.
