Make a folder unmovable?

    I have a Tiger 10.4.11 Server running AFP with 30 or so users running 10.3, 10.4, and 10.5 (mostly 10.4). They all connect to the AFP server and work on basic word documents, quickbooks, etc.

    The root directory has 20 or so folders (Finance, Development, Volunteers, etc) and sometimes a user moves a root folder into a subfolder by accident. This causes the other 29 users to panic because the entire directory is gone.

    Is there anyway to make a folder unmovable but still allow access into it to edit files inside?

    Thanks for any help!

    Do a custom ACL with reading rights but limited writing rights

    Remove write permission to the folder that contains the folders you do not want moved. Moving a folders is actually a write operation in the containing folder.
