Unable to take ownership of folder in Windows Server 2003

This has stumped me.  I have a directory on a Windows 2003 server in an AD domain (2k native mode) which I am unable to view the security for.  I have gone to the parent folder and attempted to both push down permissions as well as take ownership of all subfolders and files, and get an error "access denied" when trying to replace permissions on this particular child object or take ownership of the folder.  I have attempted to do this with both my domain account (member of domain admins) as well as the local administrator account.  Neither account can access the contents of the folder, either.  I am also unable to rename or delete the folder.  I am assigning this question the maximum points value in hopes of a quick answer.  Please let me know if additional information is needed.

check special perms on the folder..

Sometimes Domain Admins have denied access..when permissions have been explicitly assigned..

Thanks to both for the quick responses.  I had previously checked out the KB article and wasn't able to figure out what was going on.  However, I checked the folder again this morning, and all appears to be fine now.  Guess I jumped the gun with this question - I had just finished a permissions report that ran over the weekend, and it was still giving access denied on the folder, but something must have changed between the time I ran the report and this morning that resolved the permissions issue.
