Have you looked at using WebDAV? I think most browsers and/or operating systems should support mounting or at least accessing a WebDAV share, it has pretty customizable permissions and will run on your server. I'm not sure it passes the "unskilled users" portion of your question, but it's worth a look if you haven't considered it.
