Create the accounts on the machine your sharing the folder for the various users that you want to allow access to these directories.

Reboot into safe mode with networking. Share your folder. Go back into the folder properties and change the permissions so that only your normal login and the logins for the remove users can have full control over the folder.

Reboot into normal mode and test

Its still the same process. In order to access your shares they will need to log on. So add the users on the shared machine, and explicity change the permissions in safe mode on the shared folders so only those users can access them

Hmm lets back up then. Do you have the network working at all? You need to go into the network properties of your lan adapter on each computer and make sure microsoft file and print sharing is enabled.

Then each computer needs to be in the same workgroup. Then you need to share a folder. Do all the computers see that shared folder?

So when all the computers are booted up into normal mode, and one of them is sharing a folder, the other two cant see that shared folder?

Can you ping one computer's ip address from the other ones?

There is no way to make it so a computer cant see a share. There is only a way to make it so that computer can not connect to it. You can hide the share if you want so unless you the know the explicity name it wont be seen. Would that help? If so just put a $ in front of the share name and it will be hidden
