I had this database shared on my windows 98 PC and had a password to access it. I gave the password to anyone who needed to use it. Now I need it on a Windows Server 2003.

How do I share the folder and limit access to the users I want to use it?

Sharing is configured in the properties of the flder on the 'Sharing' tab.

By default Everyone is given Full Control on new shares and this is fine.

You can then set the NTFS permissions on the file itself to only allow access to the specific user you want to access the file.
