I am adding serveral (peer-to-peer) XP clients to a 2003 domain.
Before they were added to the domain, the user's applications set file system permissions to allow acces only to select user accounts.
Is it possible with group policy or another method to grant the domain users access to the application's files, without manually setting them on the local file systems of each machine?

Not really, cause that's where the permissions exist -- on the local file system. You might be able to save some time and work by using the administrative shares of each client mahine to set the permissions remotly. This would eliminate the need to boot people off of their computers to set the permissions, in fact it wouldn't interrupt them at all, just map drives to \\host\c$ or \\host\d$ depending on the drive letters of the client machine. Then, access the security for the mapped drive or drive subfolder and modify accordingly.

Thanks PaulHieb.

I've found that I can combine scripts using cacls and accessing the dirs. like you mentioned to be a great time saver.
