How to change home drive permissions given to users in AD Users & computers

Active Directory Users & Computers automatically gives the user Full permissions on the folder that is specified as the home drive.

Can anyone tell me of a policy or any way of changing it so that it gives the user Modify permissions instead of full?

    "This default permission behavior that is used by the Windows 2000 Active Directory Users and Computers utility for a new home folder cannot be configured (changed)."

    "This flexibility provides an administrator with the ability to set the preferred permissions on the parent folder before creating the home folders (which will be child folders of the parent). Then, when the Windows Server 2003 Active Directory Users and Computers utility is used to create home folders, each new home folder will automatically inherit the permissions of the pre-configured parent folder."
