NT Small Business Server difficulty

We run Microsoft NT 4.0 with the Small Business Server program to manage our network.  It seems like the two fight sometimes, such as with priveleges.  After I set access to folders for a new user, they still can't access files unless I then go to Explorer to assigned drives or folders and set access priveleges, including subdirectories.  This is a hassle. What can I do to avoid this?  Added clarification: The Small Business Server/MS Back Office has its own interface and wizards for adding users, including set up of access to shared folders, shared printer resources,internet access priveleges, remote access, etc. The SBS is not a traditional NT Server network, but a package of programs to manage NT.

What do you mean by "After I set access to folders for a new user, they still can't access files unless I then go to Explorer to assigned drives or folders and set access priveleges, including subdirectories."?
Where do you set access at first if not through Explorer?

Please put down the exact steps you must take. Well try to help from there.
Do EVERYTHING through the Small business Server console.  This is a must!

If Small Business Server is to act properly as the server, it has to be the "program" in charge.

Also, upgrade to Version 4.5 as soon as possible.  This takes care of some miscellaneous bugs.  This is a free update.
