Windows/Macintosh NTFS permissions

Hello, hope someone can help me in figuring this out.
I have a shared folder on a 2003 server that is accessed by both PC's and older Mac's. I want users to be able to drop files in this folder but not be able to create folders. I got this working file on the PC side by setting special permissions for Domain Users so they can't Create Folders / Append data.
The problem is on the Mac side they then can't copy files to this folder at all.

Thanks, Jon

Thanks for the the links but they don't seem to address my situation. My Macs can access the share without a problem until I tweek the permissions on the Windows side.

Thanks again but I'm beginning to think it's not possible to do what I want. I have read all the stuff you referenced but nothing talks about how the windows special permissions are translated. I want mac users to be able to only write files to a share and not be able to create folders. It seems that mac users either can write or they can't.
