Uhm, as far as I recall, Win2000 deletes them only after asking the user
for confirmation (something like "this folder is read-only, do you really
want to delete it?").
If you want to prevent them from being deleted even after confirmation,
then you could try setting to read-only the parent folder which contains
the undeletable folders (which would be the share root folder itself,
supposing the undeletable folders are at the first level).
