promote file server to domain controller

I have a 2003 file server that currently stores photos for network users. It has a c drive and a d drive, both are different physical drives.  The c drive has the operating system on it. The d drive is shared to all users on the network and stores the photos.  Users can save and delete photos on the d drive as needed.  I want to promote this server to a domain controller.  If I do that, will the users still have the rights to save/delete photos from the shared d drive?

It will be fine as far as the shares are concerned.
