Sharepoint permissions not working

I am baffled.

I set up two sites on my Sharepoint 2003 and gave non inherent rights to user a and b. I created a second site and gave non inherent rights to users a and c.

User b can log onto both sites, where he shouldn't be able to long onto the second site. I've tried to recreate this by copying his account into a new account thinking it was an AD problem. No go, so I thought I'd give my test account admnistrator rights over all of sharepoint and I still couldn't get in.

any ideas?

Eliminating inheritance won't remove permissions that were already there.  I'd suspect you still have something set incorrectly in the permissions.

These are two new subsites though...they weren't there before.

I might delete them and recreate them and see what happens.

There have been some bugs related to permission inheritance in Sharepoint.  Make sure you have the latest Sharepoint Service Packs applied.
