Generally speaking, network sharing is disabled in safe mode.  You can enable networking, but I do not believe that other users will be able to AUTHENTICATE to your sever while it is in safe mode, so they will not be able to access network resources.

If you want networking then you should boot in safe mode with networking enabled:

Safe Mode: Loads the minimum set of device drivers and system services required to start Windows XP/2000/2003. User specific startup programs do not run.

Safe Mode with Networking: Includes the services and drivers needed for network connectivity. Safe mode with networking enables logging on to the network, logon scripts, security, and Group Policy settings. Nonessential services and startup programs not related to networking do not run.
