Setting up user names and passwords in a win xp environment on MS server 2003.  I am creating a website in IIS root folder.  The website is for a childcare centre and has four rooms.  I want to allow a parents U/N and P'wd  to allow them access to only their childs folder.  How would I limit their access to specific directories?

Any reason why you are doing this with IIS and not just using shared folders?
There is a section on IIS permissions etc at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/WindowsServer2003/Library/IIS/cf7f59d4-9ab9-4038-a482-d72d3e6f801e.mspx?mfr=true

how would I use shared folders instead and do they require a user name and password?

use NTFS permissions from folder properties - security tab for each folder. Remember to remove Everyone and all other users (excluding the user you want to give access to that folder) from the access control list and add only those user accounts who ned the access, give the permissions (read/ write or whaever you want) and apply the changes.
