Its not possible, if you need more concurrent shared access then put the shared folder on a Windows Server or you can set up a Linux server and put the file share on that using SMB based file sharing.

I am not shure if this is what you want

I have an Xp machine with two admin acconts abd three restricted.

Wih Symante Partition magic i have created 4 extra partitions of 2 GB on the harddisk.

You can create folders and every user /account can reach them.

Sorry, that's the max.

MS does that to keep you from using XP as a full-blown server. You'll have to upgrade to Windows Server 08 or switch to another OS such as Linux, Unix, etc.
