password protect network pc

hi folks, i have 3 PCs which access the internet via broadband, these three are networked and have access to the main server, i have just added another but i only want this to access the internet and not have access to the files on the server, how can i prevent this 4th pc from seeing the files, i think a password would do but i dont know where to start, thanks in advance for any help

What is the operating system of the 'main server'? This may help determine how best to secure the Internet PC.
