    Remember, you have built in shares already on the DC, notably the SYSVOL and NETLOGON shares. Unless it is the file server as well as domain controller or perhaps the only server on your network (SBS?), sharing storage on a domain controller is not necessarily a best practice.

    I agree, I wouldn't share a drive on a DC. The administrative shares ($) are probably already in place as well.

    I agree with Carlosdl, On Windows 2003 Server DC, not possible to share a drive, but u can share a folder under a particular drive. Go as the answer on top. slight change here, in the drive make a folder or select folder which u want to share. Yes, be care for permissions, for proper way see the below.... To configure share permissions: Sharing tab > Permissions > Add In Select Users or Groups DB, double-click the appropriate user accounts or groups, when finishing, click OK. NOTE: The groups and users that added, and the "Everyone" group, are displayed in the Group or user names list. In the Group or user names, click each user or group, and grant permissions that u want to the user or group. After setting all these, click "Everyone" group, and click Remove. Now click OK.

    Whay would you want to share a DC drive, assuming its the primary partition? But as highlighted follow suitable answer according to all the above answers. Depending on why you want to share, be careful on the permissions you might want to remove "everyone" and assign to specific users for that particular share
