I've got this very irritating problem. Hope someone out there can help.
There is a folder on the server that needs to be shared (read only). In this folder there are many subfolders that must also be shared (read and write).
Now if I use network neighbourhood in Windows 98, and open the individual folders everything works out fine.
But if I map the root folder (which is readonly) under My Computer and open it, and then open a subfolder from the same window, the subfolder somehow inherits the readonly property of its parent folder.
Is there a fix to this?
