Tips for a great answer:
Double-click the "My Computer" icon on the desktop.
This opens the Explorer window.
Navigate to the folder you wish to share.
Right-click the folder and select "Properties." Click the "Sharing" tab.
This is where you configure the folder for network sharing and set permissions for users to access the directory.
Click the "Share" button.
This opens a window with a list of users configured on the network.
Add the groups and users who are allowed to have access to the folder, by highlighting the name and clicking the "Add" button.
When you've added all the users, click the "Share" button.
Click the "Advanced Settings" button.
This opens a configuration window where you can give the folder name an alias.
This hides the real name of the folder and shows the alias to users when they browse the computer for open shares.
Type a friendly name into the textbox and press the "Ok" button.
Click "Ok" in the main share properties window.
The settings are saved and take effect immediately.
hope this helps
