I've been using premiere for about a year, I came from Sony Vegas Pro.
Anyway, we had a shoot yesterday, a two camera interview on one subject. (7d &5dmII) both shooting 23.976fps and we recorded our audio with an external recorder.
So, I lined up the audio by turning the turning the 'Show Audio in Time Units' on. This works great. I can move the audio to perfectly match up between the frames of the video in 1/4800 increments. Lovely.
After I lined up the audio I attempted to line up the two video tracks on top of each other (when the clap board strikes) and even though the Show Audio in Time Units is enabled, I can't perfectly line up these tracks. The track snaps between frames, making it impossible to line up. Yes, snapping is turned off. How do I move the video 'between the frames' so to speak? This was quite easy to do in Vegas.

I don't use Premier or Vegas, but I don't see how you could move video "between frames", a frame in the smallest discreet chunk in video (well unless you count fields, but I don't think that applies here).
I think your approach was backward - line up the video (since it has a 24 fps resolution) first, not the audio (with it's 48,000 samples a second resolution).
You see the problem? You're are trying to align something with 48,000 discreet units per second with something that only has 24 discreet units per second, so line up the video to the audio not the other way around.

If you want an "automatic" solution, Pluraleyes works well for syncing multiple tracks.
If you want to do it by hand, Ichy is on the right track (ba-dum-bum) .
