i created a new user then on a 2003 server i created a share gave this user full rights and they can see the folder and get into it, but when they try to access a file and or create a new folder they get access denied. what did I miss I have done this a thousand times. I also have a group assigned to this share with full rights with this user part of that group?

On 2003 the default share permissions is READ.  Check out the share permissions and not just the NTFS.

Have you enabled 'Replace permission entries on all child objects with entries shown here that apply to child objects' in the Security tab > Advanced button on the folder properties?

What if you browse to the server like \\serveripaddress\share and not by hostname? it should ask you for your username and password again. maybe that works?

Check with security->advanced->effective permissions to see the user's effective permissions for the folder.
Do you have any deny permissions involved set for any group the user belongs to? If so, deny will override the allow permissions, and give the effective deny permission.

On the 'Effective Permissions'-tab, you nead to click on the Select-button to select what user/group you want to analyze.

The permissions will be set at the same time when clicking Apply or Ok.
