Default File Permissions Windows 2003...

I setup a folder named "public", shared the folder and set the permission to everyone. Then I created folders under that for each user, sharing the folder and setting the permission to a specific user. Each user may have access to more then one folder under public. Then I mapped the Win XP clients to the public folder. But how do I set it up so each client only sees the folders he or she has permission to access?

TIA

Probably with a login script using the MAP command would help.

Problem is that it is the server is not set up with active directory. So home dirs are not possible.

Assign a Home Folder to a Local User
To assign a home folder to a local user:

1. Click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer Management.
2. In the console tree, click Users in Local Users and Groups.
3. Click the user account.
4. Click the Action menu, and then click Properties.
5. Click the Profile tab, click Connect, and then specify a drive letter.
6. In the To box, type a path. This path can be any of the following types:
• Network path, for example:
\\server\users\tester
• You can substitute username for the last subfolder in the path, for example:
\\server\users\username


Where server is the name of the file server housing the home folders, and where users is the shared folder.

7. Click OK.
