I have a SBS 2003 server with XP pro machines connecting to it.  I am running a domain and would like to know if it is possible set permissions for a folder on a local drive on the XP machine?  For example: I was all users in the domain to be able to have write access to the C:\work folder. Right now it seems like the domain users group can't write to the c: because the group is restricted.  Any ideas how you would do that?

Has a share been create on C: to some "work/data" folder?
Share would have Authenticated User with change and folder permissions with users with modify.
Wouldn't want to give all users access the root of C.

No,  it is not a share.  I can right click on the folder when I am at the machine and change security settings for that folder.  I am just trying to figure out how to do it through group policy instead having to go to all 40 computers on my network.

The local group on the XP workstation should have users with at least read to folders.
The local users group membership should be reviewed.  The group may contain "domain users group".

Don't have a dc available now, I'll look in the AM.

If you want your domain users write to the folder, you just need to share that folder and grant Domain User R/W... access accordingly. On the users' perspective, they only need to map or browse to the folder, example: \\servername\folder to be able to write to it. You shouldn't have to worry about C:

You can do that easily with a GPO applied to the workstations in question (start with an OU with only a test workstation in it).
Go to Computer Configuraiton\Windows Settings\Security Settings\File System, add "C:\Work" (you don't need to be able to browse to the folder if you're doing this on the server, you can just add the full folder path). In the following dialog, you can specify the permissions you want the folder to have.
Finally run
gpupdate /target:computer /force
on the test client to check if the permissions have been assigned.
When you link the GPO to your production workstations, they'll apply the change automatically after 90 minutes at the latest.
