files are not changing from read only

I have a customer that was running NT4sp6 server that died.  I removed the hard drive from the old server and put it in a new Windows 2003 Server and copied their shared data directory.  The Shared directory "fs1data" has been set to share 'everyone' and security 'all users full control'.  However when they attempt to use a software package that accesses files in the fs1data shared directory "fully mapped" they keep getting xyz.table ( a flat file)  is read only.  I have done a right click on the fs1data directory and cleared the read only check and applied to all files and subfolders as well as on that table.  The file itself shows that it is not read only but the fs1data folder keeps showing read only everytime I check the 'general/properties' tab.  Any ideas?  This customer is unable to continue to operate their business until the files are writeable.

Thank you in advance.

This is almost certainly the share permissions

Rightclick on the share, select properties, sharing and pression permissions.
Give your users change control

This is a change from pervious version of Windows where the defaul share permission was full control
