File server for 16 computers, 5 user accounts - would windows 2008 foundation work?

I need to create a file server. The server is just going to be a simple SMB file server, do not need huge security either. It is to my understanding that windows 2008 foundation only allows up to 15 user accounts? If you license per user I would assume that all 5 users can be logged into the various computers as long as there are not more than 15 users? I don't expect to have more than this. I technically only have 5 users but still would like all users to be able to connect to the server from any of the 16 computers sometimes at the same time.  Would printers use a user account? Do I have to use a domain or can I have as a workgroup server? Thanks
