Thank you for posting in SBS newsgroup.
According to your description, I understand that you would like to know how
to log the access or change to the folder on windows 2000. If I have
misunderstood your concerns, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Based on the information you provided, it should be a windows 2000 issue.
If you would, please post this question in the Microsoft.Public.Win2000
newsgroup. The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will
get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the
newsgroups regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your
interaction with us.
Also as I know, you can enable Audit log in Event log to do so. I provide
the detailed steps on SBS for your reference:
1. Click Start, click Run, type "gpmc.msc" and click OK.
2. Expand Domains -> your domain -> Domain Controllers.
3. Right-click Small Business Server Auditing Policy and click Edit.
4. Expand Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings
-> Local Policies -> Audit Policy.
5. In the right pane, double-click "Audit object access".
6. To audit successful access of specified files, folders, select the
Success check box.
7. To audit unsuccessful access to these objects, select the Failure check
8. To enable auditing of both, select both check boxes.
9. Click OK.
10. Run "gpupdate /force" or restart the computer so that the policy takes
effect on SBS.
After you enable auditing, you need to specify the files, folders that you
want audited. To do so:
1. In Windows Explorer, locate the file or folder you want to audit.
2. Right-click the file, folder that you want to audit, and then click
3. Click the Security tab, and then click Advanced.
4. Click the Auditing tab, and then click Add.
5. In the "Enter the object name to select" box, type the name of the user
or group whose access you want to audit. You can browse the computer for
names by clicking Advanced, and then clicking Find Now in the "Select User
or Group" dialog box.
6. Click OK.
7. Select the Successful or Failed check boxes for the actions you want to
audit, and then click OK.
8. Click OK, and then click OK.
After that, you may check the Security event log to find the info you want.
Please Note: Frankly, checking the security event log to track which user
update certain public folder is not an easy way since there are bunch of

I hope the above information helps.
Thanks for your time and I look forward to your reply.
