For the hell of it, I took my test 2000 machine out of the domain and
put it in its own workgroup.  I then shared a directory on my machine,
which is in the domain, and gave Everyone full share and NTFS
permissions.  I changed the local admin password on my 2000 machine so
it didn't match the local admin password on my computer.  I was NOT
permitted access to this share, as expected.  Shwew.  I would have
killed myself if I had.

Ok, I went and tested this myself, and as you may have guessed by now it didn't work. Now I'm confused, what makes up the everyone group, and what's the difference between that and authenticated users? I know the difference between domain users and authenticated users, but this one has me stumped.
