Access Deied to Mapped Network Drives. Please Help!!!!!!!!!!!

Morning Experts.

I have a small problem with folder permission this morning.

Here's my Setup

File Server : Win2003
Domain Server : Win 2K
Workstation : WinXP

I have Active Directory Setup on the 2k machine and a ton of shared resources on the 2003 machine. I want to create a place for all my employee's to keep their outlook .PST files so I create a folder on the 2003 Box called PST Files. I leave the default permissions alone and all is good do far.
I now want to creat a personal folder for each employee -- smith.bob and I want to restrict access to only Bob Smith, still no problems here. I add him as a user to the folder, set him as the owner and take away inheritable permissions to smith.bob. So now I have a secure folder that only smith.bob can access.

OK here's the problem, when I go to Bob Smith's computer and map the drive using Bob's username from the active directory I am able to map and see the folder but I cannot do anything to it, write, copy.... Therefore it's kinda useless because it won't let me move Bob's .PST file into the folder???

Can anyone shed some light on this for me please?

What are the share-perm's  where Bob is mapping to?

Your share permissions much match your folder permissions
like johan has suggested 2003 is different from 2000.  If you are going to share the folder you have to set the share permissions and not just the permissions you are used to in 2000.  The share permissions is whats keeping you from writting to the folder.  Under the share as name in the properties of the folder there is also a share permissions link.

You can also access the share permissions in the computer management console.
