CACLS.EXE How to? ...

After installing Windows NT Server 4.0 I install SP5.
At this point I wish to perform Security customizations like eliminating from the entire OS the EVERYONE Group for specific purposes.  I also wish to add a user or group to a specific directory with its related subdirectories.
How do I perform such a task respecting the Existing Security system?

I was thinking to use CACLS.EXE as the proper tool but I do not know how to apply such a change on the entire HD without performing a CACLS.EXE command for each individual directory.

Any help?
Thank you,
