audit policy for files and directories

I've enabled audit policies for my desired files and directories.  Now I'm a little confused on setting the permissions.  I would like to log all successful and failed attemps to my specified files from all users except the administrator.

How can I do this?  I currently have it logging only failed attempts from the administrator and below that entry I have it logging all failed and successful attempts from anyone in the 'everyone' group.

Also,

The file access audits get logged into the Security log for a few mins then it quits.  I get other logs, however,  the audits I just recently enabled are not being logged anymore.  It seems that another policy is overwritting the new settings.  I've enabled auditing in the 'Domain Controller Audit Policy'.  I left the domain policy set to 'not configured'.  

This stands true for any new audit setting aside from file audits?!  Any thoughts?

i take it this is SBS server?

as far as your permissions go, just add the users that you want to audit in (or the everyone group/Domain Users Group) and select your successful and unsuccessful attempts

run a gpresult on one of the DC's and see what policies are applying. This (if not SBS) should all be applied in the default domain controllers group policy

It's win 2003 standard and I've done everything above.  The Domain Controller Policy is being applied succesfully.  It will audit for awhile and it will then quit.  It's weird.  Also, in the GPMC application I have the Domain Controller Policy linked, however, it's not enforced.  It's being applied though.....
