I have a public folder that I want to give a user client permission; however, I also want all the sub-folders to inherit the same client permissions.  Because there are about 100 sub-folders, I do not want to manually add client permissions to each.  What's the best way to apply these permissions to every sub-folder?

Which version of Exchange? Including service pack?

Exchange 2003 SP2 provides a very good method for propagating the settings down, without effecting existing permissions. Other versions it is a replacement of existing.

It is much easier with SP2, so if you can upgrade do so. I don't have access to an SP1 machine, so cannot tell you what the exact menu options are.
If you right click on the folder, then choose Tasks, All Tasks, you should have something like Propagate settings to choose from. I can't remember the exact path.

On SP2 you choose Tasks, Manage Settings and a wizard comes up where you can select what you need to do.
