I suggested at my work that we should create some sort of network or server to share files between 8-10 computers that employee's work on. Naturally since I suggested it they gave it to me as a pet project because I'm the youngest and most technologically advanced member on the team lol. I have no experience with this, Initially I thought I might be able to set up an FTP server in XP, but it's required that there be multiple shared folders, some requiring different user names and passwords for more sensitive data. As I understand (which is little) all I can do now is access a folder on my computer through FTP and I can only password protect it with my own WinXP user name and password.
Does anybody know a relatively simple way to achieve sharing multiple folders and files with different passwords between computers? (i.e. user name and passwords that can be created, not default XP login ones)

All the computers at work are running XP, so I'm looking for something windows-wise, since I'm only here for the summer and won't be able to troubleshoot when I'm gone. Still option to suggestions but I will look into this nonetheless, thanks for the link, maybe if I can get it working I can sell it to them.

Thats what I'm trying to do, not sure how to go about it.
