I would like to stop users creating sub directories on a shared windows 2003 folder. I went to advanced securtiy settings and didn't tick  "create folder / append data".

This indeed does stop users creating sub - directories but also stops anybody appending data to any exisitng files making the setting a bit redundant.

Any suggestions?

The permission you talk about is reffering to folders/files. Now, when you set permisiion to folders, you must not check "Replace permission on child objects" or see at Apply onto" to select "This folder only" or "This folder and subfolders", not any option including files. If you already denied permission to folders and files, reset permission.
