In Windows XP, if I right click a folder in Windows Explorer and go to "Sharing and Security", and then the "Sharing" Tab, and then "Permissions", I am offered the following choices:

Allow or Deny:
Full Control
Change
Read

What I don't understand is you can:
Uncheck Allow and Uncheck Deny
or
Uncheck Allow and Check Deny

What is the difference???  If Allow is unchecked doesn't that imply Deny?  I assume there is a finer point I am missing here.  Any help is greatly appreciated!

Furthermore, the existence of both "allow" and "deny" permissions complicates matters further. To deal with these complexities, Windows 2000 uses an algorithm that follows these general rules:
