Is there a way to link multiple folders virtually to one main folder?

OK, I have two hard drives.  They have the following structure:

C:\Data\Folder1
C:\Data\Folder2
D:\Data\Folder-A
D:\Data\Folder-B

I want to be able to make them appear as subdirs of a main folder, like C:\CompanyData.  So when you do a dir of c:\CompanyData, you see:

C:\CompanyData\Folder1
C:\CompanyData\Folder2
C:\CompanyData\Folder-A
C:\CompanyData\Folder-B

I used to do this with DFS, I had setup a DFS root on my server then a script would create links for each folder.  Problem is, I have a friend who wants to do this and he does not have a server, just one workstation with Vista.

Is there a way to do this?  Doesn't have to be a built in way, third party software would be fine but I'd prefer an in-Vista solution to avoid having to buy extra stuff.

Thanks!
