Hi All - Under Windows 98Se I was able to set a password on any shared folders. Having changed my machine and now having XP Home I can't find a way of doing this. Any ideas?

As far as I am aware (and I could be very wrong) you cannot password protect shared folders, only set ntfs and/or share permissions on the folder in question

Thanks spikeychris - looks like I can't set this in XP Home. I will have to do some messing about with my router to bump up the security on our home network. I had hoped to make all shared folders password protected to protect personal data shared between our home computers. Should have paid the extra for XP Pro!!
