Setting up Home Directories in Windows 2003

I have set up some user directories in Windows 2003 by going into user properties in AD and clicking on the profile tab and typing in the directory.  Windows 2003 then creates the directory under the home folder that I created.

However, when the user is at his/her machine they don't have rights to create or save to the directory.  I went into home and noticed the "Everyone" had rights to see the directory and on individual home directory, the user has full rights which should make them able to use the drives.  Any ideas on what I might be doing wrong?

rather than creating "home" folders why don't you just re-direct the "My Documents" folder with a group policy. If you do this it is much more efficient and all the permissions etc are automatic. In addition users just save to "My Documents" as normal and they don't need to concen themselves with hving to save to a designated folder - its all transparent  see http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/w2k3/gp/group_policy_folder_redirect.htm for details of how to set this up.

Share permissions?

I didn't want to redirect the "My Documents" directory because that would have filled up my server in about 15 minutes considering all of the junk, pictures, music, etc. that is in most people's "My documents" folders.  I found a solution on my own.  Please close this question.
