Changing permissions on a read-only folder in Win2k server

How can I change permissions on a folder that accidentally has read-only access for users, including the administrator, on a Windows 2000 server? I am the network administrator.

As the administrator, you can take ownership and then redefine the permissions. To take ownership, click the advanced button on the security tab, then select the owner tab.
