how do i share a folder on a workgroup without home share?

i've enabled homeshare and now can't seem to turn it off. All users on the workgroup can see all folders in homeshare. Which isn't what i want i just want to share the documents folder and that's it. ive turned off omeshare and they are all sill showing up. I've also right clicked on the documents folder and set share to everybody but it doesn't seem to show up on any of the other computers running xp. But yet all the homeshare folders do argggghh! any help would be greatly appreciated.
