Network Sharing Problem

I have just set up a small office network. Four computers in office A and four in office B. They all connect to an eight-port hub, which connects to a back office server that is on broadband. All computers share the Internet ok and all can share certain folders on the server, as allowed. My problem is, how do I stop the computers in office A accessing the computers in office B and vice versa? All computers and server run xp pro.
Thanks in advance.

disable file sharing by right clicking on the folder you dont want to share and clicking on properties, a new dialogue box will come up with which you should click on the sharing tab, tick the box that say's make this folder and subfolders private so that only you have access, blah blah, etc, etc.....

The solution might lie in setting up a network with the Office A computers and a network with the Office B computers. Install two network adapters in the server so that both networks can connect to it. I believe that, provided the two adapters in the server are not bridged, the server will be the only PC that can access both networks.

Look in the Security Policies for disabeling Network Neighborhood, the client machines would not be able to search the network but still have access to the shared resources your have applied on the server.
