Yes, but more importantly, if you do not have 'Everyone' set on the 
share tab (which, as far as I can see, is the default) then your users 
will not be able to access the permissions. Unless you have a valid 
reason to alter the share tab (and I cannot think of one), leave it 
alone, this is one of the mistakes that a lot of people make, they alter 
the share tab.

The problem is that Microsoft called the tab that you might need to 
modify 'security', a better name would have been 'NTFS permissions'.
