No. He will see actual HDD free space.
You may limit usable space using quotas but he will view more space he actually can use.

Yes it is possible - you need to set-up and enforce Disk Quotas

the R2 version of 2003 Server contains some enhancements to disk quotas

Deny "list folder content" for second folder for not allowed user. It's ok for 2 folders. If you have more folders you may assign "list folder content" right to allowed users instead of denying it for disallowed.
