Exchange 2007 - Creating and Managing Address Books

I need to create a number of department specific address books, populate them from the GAL and then hide the GAL from users.  Reason is that users are defaulting to the GAL and are sending emails to the first user that pops up rather than checking the full receipient name.  Does anyone have a checklist of how to go about doing this?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
