I'm trying to get an easy and clean idea how to group users for folder access permission in Windows 2003 mixed mode single domain.

For example,
F:\(Data)
|-Accounting
       |-Client Billing Info
           |-Reports
           |-Client Scores
       |-Promotion
           |-Client Billing Info
|-Reservation
|-Management      

Let's say under Accounting folder, I want to give different access permissions for different sub folders.
I have;

UserA
UserB
UserC
UserD

I want to give UserA and UserB modify permission to Client Scores folder and Reports
I want to give UserC read permission to Client Report only
I want to give all read permission to Reservation
I want to deny all to Management.

I can't add Global group to Global group or Local to Local, but only Global to Local, which makes difficult to group users in inheritance for access permissions.
I don't know it's because the functional level of the domain is windows 2000 mixed mode. I can raise the domain to native mode, but wonder how other big companies do user groupings with large mixed mode....
