What to DO with Nested Shares in DFS in Windows 2008 R2

Ok. I have a large share directory that we have replicated over DFS successfully. However, it has been requested that there be three directories in that share which have different permissions and are setup with Access Based Enumeration so they be invisible to those who don't have permission. In addition, these are to be shared separately and mapped to different drives. Do we have to do anything special with DFS for this?
