Default Sharing problem

I work in an office with a network of 10 PC's. I have a folder on my computer that i want only one of the other users to be able to view. How can i achieve this? By the way we use Windows XP.

I don't think that you can do just a single folder with only one networkuser without a third party application.

This is what microsoft has to say about sharing.

Are these machines running in a workgroup or a domain? Follow the link mentioned by petro but when it comes to the security/permissions tab remove the everyone group and add the username of the user you wish to allow access.
