Yeah I'm aware of the SCE, but my boss is adamant that we're not installing
the MMC on our NT4 system. I know that when you install it the default ACL
editor changes to the Win2K version. When we migrate to 2K next year he'll
be forced into that situation anyway but until then - no chance.

The pitiful life of an NT Sys Admin eh?!! Ah well, maybe he'll leave soon
and I'll take the initiative before his successor gets established in post -

Thanks anyway mate - I'll probably look into some VB-type program in the
meantime, or swot up on regini.
