I have an SQL Server 2000 running as the publication and distributor.  I create a pull subscription on a pc that is running MSDE 2000.  I get errors of:
The process could not deliver the snapshot to the Subscriber.  The step failed.
Unable to open BCP host data-file
Unable to open BCP host data-file
The process could not bulk copy into table '"dbo"."MSmerge_contents"'.
The process could not deliver the snapshot to the Subscriber.

This is the Agent on the Subscriber... What I am assuming that I will have to do is create a group on the domain that has access to the snapshot folder then add the User that runs on the subscriber machine to that group???
