Serve-u and permissions

Ok, the more I understand about NT Permissions, the more confused I get.
Could we start say with basic rules of priority example

from highest to lowest

1. File permissions via NTFS
2. DIR permissions via NTFS
3. Share permissions via NT Networking
4. Share permissions via IIS

Would this be accurate? if so, I seem to have no problem getting through
this issue with my account, which is confusing because, I have an NT
account called Franco, I have an emerald account called Franco. and of
course they are set up with full administrative privilege. but when I go to
my user directory, it lets me in no problem, but refuses joe average
customer with the 550 denied message.

The share has permissions which override or limit the file
permissions. For example if the user has RWAD via NTFS, and the
share says they only get Add, then they will be abled to CD into
the dir, not NOT list anything.
