Look into multi threading. Have on thread that waits for people to connect and then launches the other threads that load the data and process the information.
You could also use one of the asyncronous facilities Win32 provides, such as completion ports, completion routines, WSAAsyncSelect WSAEventSelect, GetOverlappedResult. Look them up on MSDN, it should get you started. Additionally, take a look at http://users.hfx.eastlink.ca/~ebrook...verlapped.html
