    Default Setting Windows XP Permissions

    Hi, does anyone know how to set permissions to not allow specific users to change any settings or write to the hard drive.

    I am wanting to make a Samba PDC with roaming profiles, and want specific users to have specific permissions.

    Thanks,
    Sparq

    Use Explorer, right click a file or folder and then click security tab.
    Also if it is a share, then under share there is permissions.
    does that help?

    Na, it doesn't help. I want permissions to stop the user from changing SETTINGS on the system, e.g. backgrounds, IE settings, and installing/removing programmes. I think I was a little vague in my first post... sorry :-D

    That's controlled by the user configuration in control panel, user accounts, group memberships tab.
