You may have some troubles while using a network share on windows because of access restriction errors. Don’t panic, just use CACLS on windows XP.

Displays or modifies discretionary access control list (DACL) files.

cacls FileName [/t] [/e] [/c] [/g User:permission] [/r User […]] [/p User:permission […]] [/d User […]] FileName : Required. Displays DACLs of specified files.
/t : Changes DACLs of specified files in the current directory and all subdirectories.
/e : Edits a DACL instead of replacing it.
/c : Continues to change DACLs, ignoring errors.
/g User : permission : Grants access rights to the specified user. The following table lists valid values for permission.
/r User : Revokes access rights for the specified user.
/p User : permission : Replaces access rights for the specified user. The following table lists valid values for permission.
/d User : Denies access for the specified user.
/? : Displays help at the command prompt.

Permission possible values :

n : None

r : Read

w : Write

c : Change (write)

f : Full control

CACLS accept more than one user and you can use widlcards (? and *) to specify multiple files.
