Use NTFS and Share permissions. If you WANT them to be prompted for a user name and password, make an account on the local PC (the one sharing), one with a unique name, and password. Make the NTFS permissions Everyone (not full control, but read write and list) and make the Sharing permissions only that local user.
A good 10 step explaination and guide: http://www.practicallynetworked.com/sharing/xp_filesharing/index.htm
Remember share and NTFS perm's work together... one affects the other.

Just an idea

I found in my local network, it's easier to run an ftp then to deal with the security of shared folders.  I can allow ftp inside my network only, I can require passwords and or firewall permission. I can seperate accounts easily. There are plenty of free ftp programs, I paid the few dollars and purchased bullet proof.
