    You're better off just adding the workgroup systems to the domain, easy to do, http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb456990.aspx <-- older but same procedure for Windows at least up to 7.

    If you don't want to do that, just create domain user accounts for the people that need access to the file shares and grant rights to those users to the files and shares. Basically, you need to do some reading on how user rights and shares work. http://smallbusiness.chron.com/differences-between-network-workgroups-network-domains-32303.html
