How can a restricted user share a folder in Win2000?

How do I share a folder in Win2000 if I'm just a normal user not a power user or administrator user?

Requires Free Membership to View

Restricted users are prevented from sharing folders in Windows 2000 and Windows XP. In fact, they don't even see the sharing tab in folders' properties dialog boxes. To share folders, your account must be a member of the Power Users or Administrators group.
