Help - Creating a shared database on a server

I run ACT 2005 and am trying to create a database on our corporate server so others in the office can see / use it.  We already have two shared ACT databases running on the server but it has been a year or more since the last one was created so I need a re-fresher course!  ACT is trying to save everything to my local computer rather than the server.  Any help would be greatly appreciated. 
Thanks!

2. For a refresher on sharing databases on a network, read this
