It would be best to let the IT dept setup their own PC. From the info given, I cannot tell you how to make it work.
If you insist on doing this yourself, it would be best to do a google search for 'networking on a lan or domain'. Plenty of help sites out there that already have procedures explained.

Unless you have rights on the Windows 2000 network, I doubt that you can set up a system so that only the IT department can use it.

I agree with Dusty and let the IT deparment handle this one. That IS why computer systems professionals exist.

The simple answer :

Connect ('huke'?) the PC to the network using a cable.
Start the computer.
Join the domain.
Share a folder.
Set permissions on the folder as desired.

Seems strange if you have a whole IT dept and you need to go to a forum to ask this question...

Any further info on scenario would enable us to give you better advice.
