What I am wanting to do is type in '\\name of pc or IP\c$' and gain access to files from there.  I am looking for what I need to do to get this working on all the PCs on my network domain, ranging from Windows XP SP2 all the way up to Windows 7 SP1.  Can someone help?

You should just be able to enable file sharing and share the specfic folders you want others to have access to on the network.  google windows file sharing

you should be able to do what you are saying if your username is part  of the local administrators group. thats all it requires. You may want to create a policy or add a restricted group to your default domain policy the following link will tell you how to do this. Now you want to add your username to the builtin\Administrators group.  http://www.windowsecurity.com/articles/Using-Restricted-Groups.html

Sharing the points because Restricted Group stuff was very informative, albeit not quite what I was looking for.  Thanks for the help guys!
