I have some shared folders on one of the pcs(server) that are on LAN and I want them to be password protected from other(client pcs) that are on the same LAN. All pcs are running Windows XP Pro.

Also is there a way to make multiple usernames and passwords to define kind of permissions I want to give(read/write/append)?

simple scenario : client pc tries to save a .doc file from Microsoft Office to a shared folder--> A pop up login screen appears--> Dependes on username and password user can/can't save the .doc file.

Thanx

this folder exists on "server" computer.Note that all users run as admin on those pcs that all have WIN XP Pro SP2.
Each "client" and the "server" pc has only 1 account(Admin)

your network is a workgroup? if yes you can go to sharing and security and add the computer name of the user that you want him to read or write to the shared folder .
