Show us the error message(s), then we can discuss troubleshooting.

If you would like some advice on how to setup the NTFS permissions on
your Exchange server, download the "Securing Exchange 2000 Servers and
AD DCs - pdf or doc" from:

My Exchange Server 2003 NTFS permissions are as follows:

NTFS Permissions:

        C:\     Admin - Full, System - Full, Creater Owner - Subfolders & files 
only - Full
                Users - This folder, subfolder, and files - Transverse, List, 
Read, Read Perms
                        This folder and subfolders - create folders & append 
                        Subfolders only - create files, write data
                Everyone - this folder only - Traverse, list, read, read, read 

        D:\     Same as C:\

        E:\     Admin - Full, System - Full, Authenticated Users - R &X , R, 
                Server Operators - All but, full

        F:\     Same as E:\

C:\ = OS
D:\ = Program Files
E:\ = Exchange DB
F:\ = Exchange log files
