Netware vs Win2k server permissions

By nevernessit ·
Im doing some research about the security permissions that Netware and Win2k has to offer. I have searched high and low for information on the net regarding Netwares permissions and have found very little. Does anyone know of any url's of sites that cover the comparison between Netware and Windows security permissions?

Two things that weren't mentioned in either of those articles (no surprise, really, since they are Microsoft pages)

Under Windows, users are allowed to "see" folders that they do not have permission to. For example, create a folder C:\TEMP, and child folder C:\TEMP\X1. Grant a user rights to C:\TEMP, then revoke all his rights to C:\TEMP\X1. he will be able to see that X1 exists, though he won't be able to do anything with it. If a user doesn't have any rights to a folder (or to any files in the folder), NetWare will not let the user see that folder at all.

Also, with Windows, only users and groups are security principals. You cannot grant access to an organizational unit (OU), like you can in NetWare.
