Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, 3 GHz / 3582 MB
Network with WORKGROUP, Win2k & XP computers, everything works fine. I need to create one share on XP computer that will be accessible to a friend.
1) Do I have to create a local account for him?
2) If yes, is there a way (reg.key) how to hide him when using: Welcome screen & Fast User Switching

Accessible how exactly? Is the friend going to be logging into one of your computers in order to access the other?

Thank you for your answer.
He has his own computer. He won't have physical access to any of my computers. He needs access to only several folders specially shared for him only and for reading only.
To make things more difficult: is there any solution if his computer were member of different workgroup?
To make things easier: using VMWare I can create computer just for sorting out this task.
Best regards,
