I am setting up a new Windows 2008 R2 64 bit server as a File and Print server.  I am new to 2008.  Setting up folder permission seems difference then Win 2003 server.  What I have is one shared folder on the server called Users and inside is several folders, Accounting, Sales, Purchasing and so now.  What I want is to have all users to be able to see the all the folder but only access the ones they have permissions to.  Right now all user can see the folders and access, but if remove permissions away from that one folder they can no longer see that folder.  How can I eliminate this, I want them to see all, access or not.  What is the correct what to set up the permission in 2008 r2 64 bit?  I had no issues with 2003 but 2008 is giving me problems/question.  Any and all help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Butch
