can you elaborate a little bit more about reconfigure, do you mean add shares or change permissions to the shares?

Permissions should always be handled by NTFS, so your sharing permissions should always be everyone - full control.
then using the security tab you would add or remove users based on who needs access, then assign them what type of rights they need.

no you can add many users or groups, best way is to create security groups and then add your users to those groups.
but you are not limited to how many users can access a share.

Where is the rescouce being shared from?
Is it a share that your client connect to on a server or is it a share on his local machine that he is sharing out to other users?
And who needs acess to it?
Sorry but just trying to get a clear picture of this issue.

There are already share drives.  I need to rename them and re-assign the user's to each one.  I also may need to add an additional share drive to the list of current ones.  This is a share that clients connect to.  The resource is being shared from the server.

OK first you need to go to the properties of the shares on your server. On the sharing tab you can add a second sharing name where you see the box at the bottom saying new share.. leave the old one until your happy with the new share name and then delte it.
Once you have enterd your new share name you can then assign permision in the same dialog box where it says permisions. As usual practice best to give everyone full controll share permision and configure NTFS permisions for users.
Hope this helps
