    Well yes there is a way to do in XP Pro. I've not messed with it but I will. But first how is your hard drive formated is it FAT32 or NTFS? The reason being is it makes a world of difference.

    Yes it makes a world of difference. Ok now I need a little info bout the network. Ok without knowing anything bout the network u have running I was able to find something along the lines of what u want to do. Said me a pm with an email address and I'll email you the info as its too big to post here

    Id running NTFS all you need to do is disable simple file sharing and then remove the accounts ( in the security properties of the folder) that you do not want to have access to this folder.

    But what I want is to allow people who has the password to access it.. and I don't wanna allow specific account... anyone on anyone computer who has the password can access it..

    Why not just setup an FTP server then?

    You can use IIS as an ftp but do not recommend it. Try using TypeSoft FTP Server. Very easy to configure.
