Creator owner permissions causing problems on my 2003 server

I have a shared folder structure on a windows 2003 server in a domain. In the directory structure, when a user creates a folder, their username shows up in the permissions and neither their username or the Creator Owner username have any permissions to the folder. They can open files, but receive  a read only message. I thing because they are members of an overall staff member group with permissions. So every time I have a user create a sub folder, they lose read write permissions to it. I have a frustrated group of users who can't access their own files in the file structure

Have you checked the inheritance for Create Owner? Is it inheriting from above and is it set to Full Control at the folder above?

It's all the way at the top of the share...and it's a fairly large amount of files..I'll have to wait for off hours to do that. Is the Creator Owner necessary for the functionality of windows permissions?

The Creator Owner automatically gives permissions to the creator based on those rights unless inheritance is turned off (modified). The three permissions that I have always left alone are:

Creater Owner
System
Local Server Administrator
