Probably the best way is to dual boot.
You can install XP twice, for example.
You can also go into bios and change password from setup to system.
That stops anyone from starting the computer.

There is a program called Lock folders which does exactly that.
PG Keys is an encryption program which can also make hidden folders.
These folders are password protected.

the folders can be secured and user access setings
limited. the program permissions can be set through the
C:\Documents and Settings user profiles. Most of these
can be set in Windows XP Pro Administrator console with
the accounts are setup.
