How can I check which permissions a user or group has?

I'm using Windows 2000 server and NTFS file system. There have been a lot of permission changes for certain folders and files, so I have lost control of where and which permissions have been changed. It's easy to open folder or file properties and find which permissions are applied to whom, but I would like to get another view; I would like to take a user or group and see where and which permissions on the file system level they have. How do I get that, because tons of files are stored on the server and I cannot check every file properties step by step. Thanks, Roberta.
Use the SomarSoft Utility DumpSec, a free utility; see also Hyena, a product by the folks that provide the free one.
