Locating folder permissions for security group

I'd like to find out on which folders a given security group have been given permissions in our AD-domain. I could not open each and every folder on every server and check each security tab, but is there any program or add-on or something that could display this automatically? I'm using a Windows 2000 Server, Service Pack 4.
Download the free resource kit tool "perms". This is available here www.Microsoft.com/reskit. Use this tool to list permissons. For example: perms computernamegroupname F:foldername will list the permissions for the groupname group on the computername computer for the F:foldername. A short file including the full syntax, for example to list permissions on all folders and subfolders for a group, is included in the download.
