Can SharePoint . . . ?

I am running MOSS on Small Business Server 2008. My client has asked me:

Can one SharePoint site have the user's permissions relating to site navigation based on their login credentials?

Your insight would be appreciated.
Also, assuming that the answer to the above question is yes; is their documentation on this or would I need to engage a professional to set this type of thing up?

    In short


    The concept is simple ,
    If you don't have access to a site you will not see it to begin with.
    Let me know if you have specific.

    They want about 20 users to have access to the site. However, they don't want all 20 users to be able to navigate the entire site.
    From what I understand, they want the site broken down into 3 sections:
    Group 1 can see everything
    Group 2 can see the main page and section 2
    Group 3 can see the main page and section 3.

    Is this doable with MOSS?

    Simply you can do it with two ways,

    Simply user groups IF using WSS or Foundation 2010
     audience. if you use MOSS or 2010 Server.

    Rights : those are given to group or users  . you can see the view only etc.

    Best of luck.
