This should be a no-brainer...Windows generally makes this pretty easy.  If there's something specific you're concerned about, ask.  Otherwise, it should be as easy as plugging the machines in to the network.

Sure I have plenty!  All you really need to do is have all the computers connected to the same network and come up with a workgroup name and assign it to each computer by right clicking computer from the start menu - then change settings under computer name.  Then you need to decide which resources you want to share from each computer to the network and set up the sharing accordingly. Here is a walk through on that.  Badabing you are in a workgroup and sharing resources.
