Three comps in XP pro environment.

Is there a way to set a password on a LAN shared document folder on a Win XP Pro machine?

(I think I just figured this out.. you set the "permissions" and assign the folder to a "user"

And...

Once I have set a password/user for a shared folder, how can I get another computer to be able to access it. It says "access denied" when I try to click on it on the network now.

Every user will need an account on the serving computer unless you are running a domain.

You could just set up 1 user account and give everyone the password.
