default security settings

is it standard for Windows 2000 Server to come with security settings set to "Full Control" for Everyone, for all hard drives, and to not have any other accounts with specified permissions?

please point to specific documentation, as i need this information for a dispute.

good info, hatim. thank you very much.

you will get the points for this question but I want to leave this open for a while longer to see if anyone else has any good information.

I may award points on seperate questions to others who provide good information.

More information:

the article that Hatim posted says that default security for drives that are converted to NTFS will be set to Everyone with full permissions.

does this affect a system with a RAID configuration? it seems that C:\ and D:\ on all 3 of my Win2K servers (which all have RAID) are set to Everyone, Full permissions.

Does anyone know, if i rebuild my servers (reinstall Win2K), will these permissions stay or will it reset to the defaults listed in the article above?
