Setup question on Home Directories on Windows 2008 R2 ADDS

Windows 2008 R2 ADDS
Windows XP SP3 Clients

I have setup homedirs on a new domain (two shares ABC and XYZ)
Share - Admin (Full), AuthUsers and required NTFS permissions
My Documents is redirected to homeshare\homepath
all works fine

I now have a request....
 that a group of users would need full access to all homedirs in share XYZ
and one user will need full access to one folder in the ABC share

What is the best way (details please) to do this? also, it should not break the privacy permissions for all users. (with the exception of the group given permissions) I know I can do this by setup a group with appropriate share and ntfs permissions, but can this be done after the homedirs have been setup?

If they are supposed to see all sub folders within that folder    setup a group and give it Inherited Permissions downwards  

no need to do anything to the homefolders and only members of the group you created will see all
all other users will only see their folder
