Setup a local account or accounts on the server. When the users connect, they can use that local account to authenticate, or map a drive using "connect as a different user" option. They need to use the localpcname\localuser in the user name. If the system is on the same network, the only thing you can't do is setup domain users and groups on the computer, everything else works the same for sharing.
