Sharing in Windows 2008 Server

I have a root folder shared and then have a user group that has full access to that folder.  I now have employees that just need access to 2 folders within that root shared folder.  I am trying to figure out how to configure the share and permissions on the server so that this new group 'Shared Users Limited' can only SEE the 2 folders they are allowed to use and not see and open ALL of the other folders that exist.  I was able to limit them to 'traverse' but that still allows them to see all of the folders and subfolders but if they try to open a file that get access denied.  

Is it possible to configure for the the limited user group to only see the 2 folders and not all of the folders, without creating another share just for them?  

BTW..this is not a domain, but a peer to peer, but it should not matter since the users have been created on the server.

You can enable Access Based Enumeration which will allow the users only to see the folders that they have permission for.
