The Windows Server 2003 Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in configures home folders with inheritance from the parent folder.
To work around this cross platform issue, don't use the Windows Server 2003 Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in to configure home folders on a Windows 2000, or:
1. Navigate to the parent folder, right-click it, and press Properties.
2. Select the Security tab.
3. Clear the Full Control check box for the Everyone group.
4. Grant the Administrators group Full Control.
