Remove everyone from the share and add only those users in Share permissions

ComputerName1\user1
ComputerName2\user2

Lets say you have 5 computers and you want to share a folder on cpu1 with cpu2 and 3 but on one else.

On cpu1 create a user account that matches the username and password used by the user on cpu2.

Do the same for the user account on cpu3.

Now Share the folder on cpu1 and in the share permissions allow the user accounts for cpu2 and 3 full control access.  Now click the NTFS security tab and add the same accounts and give them either read access, modify access or full control depending on what you want them to be able to do to the files in the folder.

The users logged into cpu2 and 3 should now have access to the files in the folder you shared on cpu1 and no one else will.

Note: If you do not have the NTFS security tab available on the windows xp machine select file and folder options then under view scroll to the bottom and uncheck the "enable simple file sharing option"

Note: No more than 10 people can access a shared folder in a workgroup environment at the same time.
