Windows 2000 folder access

I'm sure this is an easy question, but here it goes.

I'm running windows 2000 server...on the user side we have individual users and most of them are grouped in either a "staff" group or a "guest" group.  

On the file storage side we have a directory called "Groups" which is mapped to a g: drive.  Within that directory are various folders.  At the highest level the "Staff" group has access to the folder and everything contained within.  However, I have a specific person that I want to give access to only one of the folders contained within that group folder.  I've tried to go in and give them permission to just that one folder and when i login with their account and try to go to the mapped g: drive it gives me permission denied.  I suspected that it should have given me access to the folder and only display the one folder that we've granted them permission to.

Any ideas on the best way to do this or what I might be doing wrong.

Hi tbeasley123,

you will need to give your group the list contents premission on the above folders so that you can navigate through to it
or give the user a direct mapping to the folder.
btw depending on your GPO settings the Traverse Folder permission might be sufficient to get the user to his folder :
