shared folders

How can i put password on my shared folders in Win XP pro?
Is there any way where the users are asked for password when they want to access any computer on the domain?
Regards.

    Use the NTFS permissions on the security tab of the folder properties to lock down the shared folder. This won't force users to input a password to access the share, as that defeats one of the main purposes of setting up a domain - centralized authentication. It will, however, allow you to define what users can access the share.

    Or do it the easy way and use GP's to allow or disallow the different users on the Domain access to the different folders.
