I am running Windows 2003 R2 and have a directory mapped for all users to R.  Some users need access to 1 directory in the mapped drive, and others need access to several.  How do I assign file security rights and share permissions so individuals can access the directories they should, and not see directories to which they should have no access.

If you don't want people to see the stuff they do not have access to then you need to use access based enumeration, see http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/Implementing-Access-Based-Enumeration-Windows-Server-2003.html

Hi,
They will see all directories within the mapped (shared) drive
Now you can restrict access to specific directories by going to the properties of the folders, go to the security tab and delete all the users within there except for an admin (just in case) and add either groups or users allowed to go in the folder. Make sure you give proper rights to each user.
Do a test on an empty folder to see how it works.
