Different Users in Windows 7

Hey guys, quick question that I could not find the answer to.

I have setup an acer revo for my parents and setup 3 users (1 admn, 1 for mom, and 1 for dad).

I would like for them to both reference the pictures, music, and video folders.

How do I go about this?

thanks

Thanks - I just tried this, when I go to edit, then Add, I enter in the first user, works perfect, but the second user does not is not found for some reason. Then i went to the user profile that worked, check the pictures section and nothing.
What am I doing wrong.
