Sync Folders?

OK I have 2 xp pro machines both with sp2 (ones a laptop) and another machine with 2003 server, I want all the machines to have the same folder on them with the same files in it and when on machine gets a new file in that folder it will sync to the other 2 (or when I tell it to). Is this possible?, with or without software?
Any thoughts would be great

I use a software package called SyncBack

The freeware option works great.

There is some functionality built into XP using "Briefcases." However, I've never personally used them before, so I'm not really that informed.

Offline Files should also do what you are looking for.
