Is this good enough to build a fileserver?

Okay, so i’m building a fileserver PC for my mom’s real estate office. Theres about 12-15 computer’s that are going to be reading files off of it. She already has one right now, but it’s pretty old and not too great of a computer.

The specifications of the PC will be this:

Rosewill RSV-R4000 Black Metal / Steel, 1.0 mm thickness, 4U Rackmount Server Chassis 8 Internal Bays

ASUS M4A78T-E AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor

Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST31000528AS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5″ Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M600 RS-600-AMBA-D3 600W ATX12V V2.3 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready

LITE-ON 24X DVD Writer Black SATA Model iHAS424-98 LightScribe Support

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders – OEM

All of this will be bought from newegg.

My question is, is this enough to handle the 12-15 computers occasionally using files from the PC?
Will all of the Windows XP Home’s and Professional’s and Windows 7’s and Vista’s be able to read the files?

Also, we need to be able to have password’s set. Example: we open up the file and we type in a username and password for access.

Thanks for your help and for reading.
