    I have a few desktops in office that are running XP Pro with a FAT32
    partition. I recently configured the home folder resides in server with
    NTFS permission and get rid of the "everyone" group. Will those XP desktops
    with FAT32 partition have any problem accessing or writing data to the home
    folders? FAT32 format doesn't support NTFS permission, so I guess whatever
    NTFS permission I set on the home folders will not apply to FAT32 formatted
    machines and they will have "Full Control"?

  2. The fact that the workstations are running FAT32 has nothing to do with what
    NTFS permissions you set on the server. If you NTFS permission the
    directories on the server this will affect all users accessing the shares
    and directories, no matter what operating system they use or what file
    system that OS uses.

  3. The fact that you are using FAT32 on the workstations does
    not have any effect on the server running NTFS.
