    Shared directory on a LAN (XP Pro Build 2600)

    I have a directory on my desktop which I share on my LAN, is there a way of creating password access to the directory as there is in Win98? The only options I can find in XP are either access to all or to specific people?

    This is what can be done in W2K - maybe the same...

    Can you create a dummy user with a special password, assign access rights to only that user, and map the drive on the pc's of those you want to allow in, using the "Connect using a different user name"?
