I recently installed Sharepoint foundation on my server.  I am not looking to do much with the software.  All I need it to do is host our company manual that has folders, sub folders, and pdf files within those folders.  I want users to have access using a username and password to access the Sharepoint page.  Is there a quick way to do this?  I don't need all the other stuff it is providing.  I only wan myself o be able to add files and all other users can only view.

Is the manual literally folders with files within them?  If so, you can simply copy the existing structure into a Document Library using Windows Explorer.  On your SharePoint site open the Documents library.  In the ribbon should be a button for Explorer view.  This will open a Windows Explorer window that you can copy into.  This only works from 32 bit browsers.

As far as security, that is pretty easy.  You would need to be in the out of the box Contributors or Owners group.  Everyone else would be in the Visitors group.  You can add them directly or drop in an AD group.
