make sure all your network computers are in the same workgroup or domain. then check to see if file and print sharing is on. you can then proceed to right click a folder, click sharing and security, and check share this folder on the network.

No any other options to set up?

i.e. the Permission things?

But yes i can share that folder as my wish but my fellow just cannot grant the access permisson outta my pc now(he cannot access my shared folder,only i can.)

Yes, you also have to set the permissions. You have to create a user account for your friend on your PC. Make sure it has the same username & password with his account on his PC, then you can set the permissions (read, write, etc.) for his account.
