    One other note you may want to use NTFS permission behind all of this as well.  Assign the user or group what ever permission they need.  If they will be installing application from the CDs then they will only need Read permission.

    I need a bit more info to understand the setup here.  So how do you clients connect to this server?  I thought above you said they connect using http which would imply a web server. Do they use an FTP client?   Are they members of the same domain?  Are they on the same network.
