Permissions on Linux Folders

amitnepal asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
  I have a following scenario:

I have folders that are in a particular user's ownership.

Now i need to give access to some of those folders to a group of users. Any ideas how I could implement that ? I want the users not to be able to access all the files/folders  but just selected ones.

I can't add them to the group because then they will be able to access all the files owned by that group.
