File permissions for single user in group

Specs: Windows XP, Quad Core G0 @ 2.4Gh

I have been asked to allow permissions for a file under a common directory (mapped drive). For a single user to have full access whilst everybody else is prevented from writing to the file.
This user is in the same AD group as everybody else.
Under the security tab I have manually added the individual user to the permissions list and ticking the full control box, whilst declining the group write privileges (of which he is a member of).
However this does not seem to work as the allowed user also cannot write, I am assuming the group policy of denying write access overwrites any individual policy to allow.
Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated

RSOP might help.

Just allow that user full, Make a group with the rest, add them eo the read only.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
