I'm using cacls for this and I don't think it comes from the resource
kit. I belive that it is an integral part of the NT4-W2000-XP etc
distribution. There was once (or still is) a program called XCACLS
that was/is included with NT resource kit and is said to be enhanced
in some ways. But the basic function of cacls is OK for setting the
permissions on a temp dir.
