I installed on my subnet a win 2003 server as the domain controller, with DHCP and DNS options too. the clients, win xp pro and and win 2003 server. In my clients when i log in via the domain, i don't have the option to share folders in the network! I want to share folders this way: right click on the folder > Properties > Sharing > Share

How can I make it appear? If I log in to the computer as the administrator I do have this option?

p.s. please be specific for how to enable it, thanks a lot :)
