All the 30 machines are iMacs running Mac OS X 10.7.3. We just want people from a particular division(not anyone else) only to use them.

I know in Windows you can using active directory create accounts for the users on a domain to which the machines can authenticate when the users try to log in.

How do I do it in Mac? I am a newbie to Mac

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Yes, they are on same subnet. But, they are standalone. There is no domain.

You could go old school and use NIS. I dislike NIS for large number of users in large environments, but for a small group of systems and users, it's not bad. Google and man pages are your friend.
