want to share out a folder with 2 other computers in a workgroup

I have 3 new Windows 7 Pro desktop computers hooked to a 4 port linksys switch.  Not connected to any internet.  I have a folder labled "Files" on 1 of the computers desktop.   I want to share this folder with the other 2 computers.  Would I use Windows 7 HOMEGROUP or is there another way to do this?  What steps do I take to right click and share out the "Files" folder on the desktop?

Home group will work but you still have to go into the folder properties and share it to the home group. If you share without a homegroup and you don't have a password to logon then you have to go into network and sharing center and turn off password protected sharing.

Once you enter the password so you can see a shared folder does the computer ever have to enter it again?
