InfoPath Form Services security/permissions issue

Here's my deal: I have SharePoint Server set up at work (MOSS) and I am currently working on putting an InfoPath form onto the site. From my understanding there are 2 ways to do this, the basic way and the more advanced way go figure. I have opted for the more advanced because I am using data connections so this requires me to "admin approve" my form template before using it. This is all done I am just explaining in as much detail as possible. So the form template is up and running in a form template library called "Quarterly Review Forms" which sits in a "Reviews" site off of the "HR" site. The form works great(for admins) and submits to the library with a concatenated name and everything and that's all cool. Finally my problem here is there is a group of people who are going to need to be creating these forms and they are in the Coaches domain group. Turns out the Coaches go to fill out the form template and every time they are asked to authenticate as if the form is only allowed for admins or something. So I figure I must make sure the permissions are set for Coaches to be allowed to that particular library. The form library gets its permissions from the Reviews site and that site has Coaches as full control. I also added Coaches to the permissions in the data connection library where I keep the .UDC file. I thought I pretty much covered what might be causing this but it still does not work. Anyone have any tips? Thanks in advance!

Have you verified that they see the library site as a trusted or intranet site?
InfoPath uses IE security zones, and that can prevent data connections from working.
If you create another test library and have them save a word document you have verified that it is not a permissions issue.
What are the data connections to? Make sure they have access to the targets as well.

Ahhhhh thats better! Turns out I had to add Manage Hierarchy to the coaches permissions. Guess that was a little simpler than I was making it. Thanks a lot for your reply though I appreciate it!
