Cannot delete, edit contacts in Public Folders

I received some exported contact folders from a branch office in another state.  I imported these folders into public folders at the main office.  I was at a user workstation when I did this, logged in as him, Bill.  Now any other user cannot edit or delete any of the contacts imported, only Bill.
I have given the group Everyone Full Control, I have tried to reassign Ownership but it reverts back.

How can I solve this problem?  We have SBS2003 R2, Exchange 2003 SP2, Windows XP pro workstations.

thanks,

thanks,

You might have to modify all the object within the contact.

The other option is to export the contact.
Then import it again using your account to a few PF.  Test it.  If it works, then delete the problem and rename the original.

The PFDAV Admini Utility from Microsoft was the Trick.  Fantastic!  Be sure to read the Word DOC instructions, edit permissions.  I added Delete and Edit to the users needed.
