i have a windows server 2003 in active directory. i have a shared folder that is not inheriting permissions. i have a read-only group, and a group with read-write permissions. when i login to a windows xp box with a user that is in the read-only group, i can create folders or documents in the folder that should be read-only. i attached the effective permissions for this folder, for this user group.
 folderam i missing something?
