Password Protect Shared Folder

Specs: Windows XP
I have a Dell Vostro 200 running XP SP3 with an attached external hard drive and am sharing the external hard drive. I have several users and each has their own PC. We are in a workgroup environment. On the external hard drive, I want to create folders for each employee and password protect each folder so the employees can back up their files. I removed Simple File Sharing and I created a generic user (on the PC with the external drive) with a password that all users will log into. The shared external drive has full permissions for the generic user. I will then create a folder for each user and I would like each folder to have a separate password so the folder is only used by that user. Any suggestions?

Not real secure. Any live cd can access that data.

I think I'd use a file protected compressed file over ntfs permissions.
