NT / WinXP /Win2000

  We are using an old computer which acts as file sharing purpose.  This serve is running NT4.
Is there anyway that we can limit the usage of a folder to each client?  i.e Client A can access his own folder only and client A cannot access others folder?

  We don't set any domain right now.

  At first, I have a thought.  I can hide a folder in this NT server, say myfolder$ ($ at the end can hide a folder), so for a particular person, say Client A, we can map the drive and he can only access this folder.  However, I tried that but when I use winXP, the folder will show!!

  Is there anyway that we can do this purpose without login to NT4?  (since we have another server to let user login and doesn't want them to remember too many password)

the best and most secure way to do this would be to join the NT4 machine to the existing domain and then control user access to each folder using share permissions and NTFS file permissions for each domain logon account. Any other way would require your users to maintain separate passwords for a separate domain/workgroup.

I try to hide all folders in the server (by folder$) and user cannot see other folders by using network neighboor
