    Private shared folders?

    I want to create three 'private' document folders on a networked Ubuntu installation.

    User A (me)
    User B
    User C

    All computers are running XP aside from my server. Users B/C share 1 login on 1 computer, while I have my own seperate. I want to set it up so that they all see a 'document' folder, but when they login, they only see their documents, not someone else's.

    Is there a way to setup that their 'home' folder that is created as soon as i add them is shared, but only 1 shared connection shows up?
    IE: They don't see 3 seperate shared 'home' folders, but only 1. And which one that is, is determined after they give the password/username associated?

    I did 'share' a folder via the nautilus GUI that did not give all access to everyone, but when trying to login, it gives me an error about only 1 person being logged in at a time. I've attached an image of the error. I did try logging in via my usual Ubuntu account info.

    Hi.

    I think that would involve a rather complexe script to switch files not supposed to be seen by B or C to invisible.

    It's honestly much easier to have 3 separate homes.
    What are the constraints hiding behind this requirements?

    If you can't afford to loose it, if you don't know how to get it back: back it up.

    Personal preference to avoid getting the other two users confused or snoopy. If it's something overly complex, I'm game to try something less involved.
