Secure a resource

I'm in a peer to peer Windows network with a Server 2003 server.

The 15 or so workstations are XP home and pro.

No domain.

To protect a folder I thought I could, via the security tab, alter permissions giving the user ABC full control of the folder.  The hope was that anyone attempting to access the folder would be prompted for the username (ABC) and password (DEF)... instead they are given an Access Denied dialog box.

Is there a way that I can just have users prompted for the username and password?

You won't get prompted, but if you're logged in with the same username/password and joined to the same workgroup or have the same DNS suffix, you will successfully authenticate.

PS.  Using windows home will not allow you to enable advanced file sharing and has really no place in a business.  FYI
