Administrator can't edit folder permissions

Q: In our company we have a windows 2000 server for file server and I am trying
to edit permissions on each folder. The problem is that on some folders i can
not edit permissions but only view them. This problem is very urgent can
anybody help?

 A: Assuming you logon as administrator and can't edit the permission, I would check the ownership first. To do that, right click on the file or folder. Select Properties>Security>Advanced>Owner.
