How do I change permissions to a folder so that user1 can read/write and user2 can ONLY write NOT READ or see the contents of the directory. This is for the purpose of placing files to that directory only. I am using w2k w/o a server?

These users are in a workgroup and there is no server on the network. Each macine(2)is a seperate workgroup.

If you created a file share on any Windows 2K computer, right click on the share and go to the security tab. There you can set the read and write properties within the folder. Just make sure that the share permissions are read to the folder.

Right-click on the folder, properties
Security
Make sure that administrators have full control.
Add Everyone with only write access.

Then only administrators can view what's in the folder, but everyone else can place files there.
