Hello,
I have a LAN with XP pro, XP home, and win98 computers.
I know that I can't set passwords to protect folders on XP home from other computers on the network, so I was wondering if anyone knows of a software (preferably freeware...) or any other way to make it possible on XP home as well. The best solution would be protection of the type you get in win98 - set passwords and determine weather u allow full/read only access.

Thanx, Bryan. I'll try the first one cuz i think the 2nd is only locking/hiding folders to users of the same computer, but it probably doesn't work on the network, or it just hides folders, while I need only certain users to be able to view certain folders...
