Netware rights on a folder?

How can I grant all rights to a certain folder under Netware without only the right that the user remove the folder itself?

For example I have a folder called shared, and I want it to be a place where everyone can create/modify/delete anything in that folder, but not delete the folder itself?  If I don't give the Erase right to the folder "Shared" then users can not erase what they create in it?

Your help is very much appreciated.

Forgot to mention that I am talking about Netware 4.11 in my question.

Set the delete inhibit flag on the folder in NW Admin

But can't a user who has all rights to it, remove the Delete inhibit if they know how to run NWAdmin or go to the Properties of the folder, under Netware properties?

No.  The delete inhibit can be set as an NDS attribute to the folder object.  The user may have the rights to t he file system, but will fail on the delete.  This pretty much explains it.

Thank you for the answer and the link.

Just one more clarification if I may:

Would this delete inhibit be different from the delete inhibit you set with the flag command or by right clicking on a folder and going to Netware properties?  I tlook like it may be different and we are here talking about NDS objects rather than file/folder objects on the file system.

Many thanks again

Yes.  It is different.  This DI is NDS not file system.  That is why it works even if the users have rights to the files system.
