SharePoint Foundation 2010 stand-alone

Hi,

I have installed SharePoint 2010 Foundation on a stand-alone Windows 2008 Server machine. Is it possible to let users work on it using local accounts? The server is going to be used by 9 users.

I did a test by creating a local user on the Windows Server 2008 machine. I set permission for this account on the SharePoint site collection. I can log in, but every document i try to open a login box pops up. Can i fix this somehow?

The workstations we use are part of a domain. The domain controllers and everything else are managed by another department. There is no discussion possible adding the SPF server to the domain.

have you tried to add the website of the sharepoint to the trusted websites in IE? IE does not send credentials to untrusted sites by default.
