Hello MAcs

i have small network at where i work, i have decided to buy a mini mac for file sharing... well it works great, now my boss wants to protect some folders with password hmmm...

OK here is the deal all client computers are connected to the mini mac and it happened to be all windows xp pro, i would like to know if there is an option on how to achieve this. when a user try to access that specific folder on the server will be asked to enter a password.

Thank you
