No Access to a Folder - Simple P2P

I have tried to give a user full permissions to a folder on a W 2003 server - in a peer to peer environment - with no joy.  This user has permissions to other folders on this server, and has no trouble getting to those.  I have emulated, in every way, the permissions on those folders, but to no avail.  This box was recently updated from W 2000 where I was having the same problem. I was thinking that an upgrade with all the patches would fix the issue - nope!
Any Ideas about what I might be missing? Thanks - Gary

Have you given both the SHARE permissions AND the NTFS folder permissions to the user?
What error do they get when trying to connect to it?

It's been so long since I've fooled with a P2P arraignment, that I don't remember how to set each of those, but it's a FAT32 drive, so I don't think I have the option to set NTFS permissions.
Attached is the error I get.

Hi,

Do we have Windows 2003 with SP2? if not fully patched.?

If this is a Vista/Windows 7 client is this fully patched?

Also try it with a different machine logging in as the same user and try accessing the folder.

Hope that helps :)
