Modify NTFS Permissions on XP Home Edition

One of the advantages of Windows XP Professional Edition is that it allows you to easily control NTFS permissions.
NTFS permissions allow you to permit and restrict access to directories. For example, if you have meddling kids who you don't want to allow access to certian folders, you can set NTFS permissions to restrict their user accounts from accessing the folders.
In Windows XP Home Edition, under normal operating mode, you do not have access to these permissions, however, if you boot XP Home into Safe Mode, NTFS permissions settings become available.
Need to setup directory restrictions? Boot into Safe Mode, set your directory's NTFS permissions, reboot into normal mode.
P.S. When booting into Safe Mode on Windows XP Home, the Administrator's account password is blank.
