Correct method of applying rights to a file structure

I just ran an installation of 2008 on a file server running 2000. It consists of a C: drive with all OS and program files and an F: drive that contains all the client and user folders.

I must have messed up somewhere assigning folder rights and want to start fresh.

the folders on the F: contain two sets of important folders.

One is the CLIENTS folder which everyone in the company should have full rights too.

#2 is the USERS folder which contains all the user's files. I want this folder to only allow the individual user to have access to his folder, except the two owners of the company should have access to all files on folders.

what is the correct configuration for doing this?

thanks in advance.

-One is the CLIENTS folder which everyone in the company should have full rights too.

Create a new group called "GRP-Share-Clients"
Make all your users members of that group
Go to the properties of the "CLIENTS" folder, click on the security tab, click advanced, click change permissions, click add.  Add the new group "GRP-Share-Clients"
In the permissions box click "Full Control" then unclick "Full Control" (Trust me, I'll explain in a minute)
Click OK until you get out of there.  YOu have now given your users rights to do anything they want in that folder except delete the parent folder.  You should never give a user full control of anything.
#2 is the USERS folder which contains all the user's files. I want this folder to only allow the individual user to have access to his folder, except the two owners of the company should have access to all files on folders.
 
You can apply the rights at each folder or find a script to help.

- two owners of the company should have access to all files on folders
Create a new group Called "GRP-Share-All"
Put the owners into that group
Apply it to the top level of the Users folder like we did with the clients folder above.
