creating network file sharing password

i have 2 computers connected to a linksys router in my household. my brother set them up so that we can share files between the two but when i access his shared folder it asks for a password and when hes trying to access my shared folder it doesnt ask for any password. id like to know how you can set it up so that there is a password to access the shared folder. i guess easiest solution would be to not put any files i want to share in there but id still like to be able to put a password on it. both of us are running windows xp sp2 and these are the specs on our pcs:

my pc
soltek sl-k890pro-939
bfg 6600 gt
amd 64 3000
corsair vs 2x512

my brothers pc
abit nf7-s
amd xp 2500+
geil 2x512

also, if someone knows of a program to track cpu heat & fan speeds that is compatible with my soltek sl-k890, that would be great. coolmon and mbm dont support it as far as i know. thanks in advance

EAsy question -- hope you had it answered if not, here goes.
  • Open the folder you want to share.
  • Go to 'Tools' > 'Folder Options'
  • Go to the 'View' tab and under advanced settings scroll down and make sure 'Use simple-file sharing' is unchecked. Uncheck it if you need to, then hit OK.
  • Right-click on the folder you want to share.
  • Click on the 'Security' tab.

Give 'Everyone' full control on this folder, but nothing else. Then create a user with a password that can access this folder. Give that username and password to anyone who you would want to access the folder.

If your folder is small and not with a lot of documents, convert the folder to a compressed/zipped folder, and add a password.
