Windows 2003/Folder Permissions - A user needs to to change permissions on their folder

I have a folder on my 2003 server.  The user needs to be able to add users and set permissions based on folder, I don't want to give this user admin rights.  

I tried to set a test folder up, giving the test user full control.  It allows new users to be set using the effective permissions but the security check boxes are all grayed out.

Anyone have any simple ideas? Also this folder isn't shared.

Create a group and allow test user to add and remove users to the group. Provide  share/secuirty permission as per your requirement. Hope this helps
