Question on Shared Files & Folders OS X -from OS X newbie - Mac Networking

Hi Group, I hope i am in the correct newsgroup for this question. I am a long time windows power user that has switched to OS X. I still use my 3 XP boxs on my network. In windows I am able to share individual folders and have full control over read write functions. I am trying to achieve this in OS X. When I enable Windows File Sharing in the OS X system properties it shares my entire Home directory. I dont want that, i want to share individual folders. Could someone please point me in the right direction ...

    OS X is more Unix-like in that regard. But there's a program available
    called SharePoints which is installed as a Preference Pane (may also be
    an app, not sure) and it will allow you to specify individual folders
    for sharing. Search at VersionTracker.com.
