How to add a PASSWORD to a share folder



I shared folders with my computer in Windows XP how can I add password to the folder like win98, windows2000.

so when they click on the network in the folder I'm sharing they need to put a password.


You can't. Either you use simple file sharing, and ppl either have read, read/write or no access; or you can use NTFS permissions with normal file sharing and those are user-based. So you can give a specific person access to one folder only, or deny certain folders or files, but not on a file by file basis like you can with 98. There are ways of encrypting data, though, and you should be able find several articles on this in the site.
