With Win 7 this is easy to do, but the whole reason I got WHS is that I want to set permission levels for various users on the network
sounds like what you really want is a domain controller on your home network, and that you also purchased the wrong version of windows server for what you want to do.
You could do what you want done really dirty with just a normal windows 7 computer, create users123456 on the windows 7 computer, assign folder permissions based on what users you want to see what... share away.
each user is going to have to enter user1 + pass when they go to connect to folders, but hey......its just for your house.
you could even map a drive, login everytime they start up save the user name and pass and they wouldn't even have to enter the user name and pass anymore...and anything that didn't have that users access, would allow or deny.
if you don't know much or anything about user permissions everything I just said is going to sound like jibberish.
