Network permissions policy

I have an XP Pro "server" here at our office.  I currently have permissions set for the users to include everthing except for Delete, Delete SubFolders and Files, Full Control, Change Permissions, and Take Ownership.

The only problem is that users cannot rename files that they create.  The reason for these permissions is to let them do anything except for the deletion of files and folders.  

Is there any way to set the permissions so they can rename files?

Hi slthom,

I would say that Owner should get full control or at least Change permission.
Because you say that users create their own files.

So, I have the root server folder as Z.  Then I have 12 other master folders where the data is stored.  I currently just have the permissions set for the main folder Z (the folder, subfolders, and files) and then the other folders inherit the permissions.  

All I need to do is add the "Owner" and set those permissions for full control/change and I should be good?
