Hi guys!

I need to create mac network; I have 5 10.4.11 Power PC workstations, and one 10.6.8 Mac Server running on Intel.

We need shared directory with different levels of privileges.

Do I need to create all shared folder users as local users on the server, so remote users could hook to it?

Guides, and other suggestions and advices are very welcome!

I would setup Open Directory on the server and add my users there instead of setting up local users. You can provide file sharing either way, but Open Directory is intended to be use with network accounts.
Open Directory is simple to setup. Once setup, share the folders, the remote users connect to the server, logs in with the server (Open Directory or local) credentials and is given choices to access any shared folders they have rights to.
All of the access rights can be managed in Server Manager.
