Need help restricting access to folders

I have a Windows 2003 Server. I am wanting to create a user account for an individual so they can log on remotely to this computer. But, I want them to have access to only one folder on the computer. They need to perform some admin functions within this folder. Is there a way that I can give them access to this one particular folder and yet restrict access to all of the other data on this machine?

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

You'l have to change a lot of security options and permissions in order to get this to work. What i recommend toing is not letting them log into your server but letting them log into a client computer, it will be a lot easier this way.

Then you can restrict everything by creating groups and deny them access to the folders that you do not want to give them access to.

Well, I am not sure that this matters but the only thing I use this server for is as a web server. THe web site that is running is using several applications and I need this person to work on only one application within a certain folder. Then they probably need to test the application on the web server. So I dont know if it would work for me to move the folder to a client computer.
