How do I set up a ts client to log into just a single folder with Win Server 2000?

I have a client who is running Windows 2000 Server software.  They would like to have their remote office be able to log into just a single folder on the server with the ability to modify, copy and paste files into the folder.  I am able to login remotely using the terminal services client but have not been able to set it up to see just a single folder.  I am having no luck with the group policies settings.  What would be the correct way to set up a group policy for the remote user or can this be done?

You can use GPO to hide drives, but not specific folders.
A workaround might be to use a logon script that executes SUBST to substitute a drive letter to the folder and configure the GPO to hide the other drives that the user isn't allowed to see.

I I were to add another hard drive to the server just for the remote site, I could hide all the other drives from that group in the gpo. Right?

Yes, the policy for hiding drives is described in the following KB. The default sample in system.adm only includes a couple of drive combinations, but you can easily add your own options by following the instructions in the KB. Modify the ADM-file and import it into the GPO when editing it with GPMC.

I haven't been able to get the gpo to show up on windows server 2000 sp4
I wentto the addins section and tried to add it but it says local computer.
What am I missing?  Thanks for your help.

OK, I was able to drill down as the kb suggested to hide drives.  It doesn't mention if this will work with terminal services.  I am working on it.
