I work for a school district in which there are a ton of student users. We use mounted network drives as storage for all their files, but we're having a problem with students being able to move those files and their encapsulating folders around.
I've toyed around with folder permissions, but as far as I can tell, it's an all-or-nothing type deal. Basically, what we'd like is for students to be able to save and access files but not move folders around, without denying them read/write access altogether.
Thanks for your advice in advance!
Most of our macs are running 10.7.5.

"Mounted Networked Drives". How are these served?
I'm assuming you don't want to allow every kid access to every other kid's files?
Does each kid have a login to their own area of the network drive?
You may want to look at ACLs, which are more flexible than old Unix file attributes.
