How do I

I want to know if it is possible to list the permissions per user per folder and sub-folder on a Win NT 4.0 SP6a Server in a work group enviroment.

Is there a free, inexpensive utility that can do this for me?  Or am I just plain old SOL!

Current Structure:

Share Name (ABC)
SUB Folder (XYZ)
sub-Sub folder 123

And so on...

I have 20 user all who may or may not have access to these folders, I need to find a way to show the level of access on all folder levels.

Please let me know if there is a free way to do this!

You can use the NT Resource Kit utility - showacls.exe
A command line utility. You can go to download.microsoft.com to download the resource kit and extract the utility.
There is a whole load of utilities there for you to explore and play with.

Very much appreciated...

I have to admit that a little more info would have been nice.  
1. Need to copy the showall utility to all volumes the need to be checked
2. need to use the /s for sub directories.

But really very much appreciated.

Excelent answer.

Glad to be of help. Actually the info is in the comprehensive readm.doc file. It shows examples and usage.
You can actually copy the showacls.exe to the root eg. c:\ and run it with the /s and dump it to a text file for reference.
