home edition won't alloy it, but at xp pro you must choose at explorer menu
service - folder options - view (second tab) and remove checkbox at "use
simple sharing" (or such). then you be able to right click at any folder and
see a "sharing" tab, where you can use permissions and such...

please, reply...
