How to restrict access to folders below a folder shared with "Everyone"?

Hi,

We have a folder called "Shared" on our SBS server which is shared at the top level with "Everyone".

We've been asked to create some remote users on the system and to only grant them access to a couple of folders within the Shared folder.  I may be missing the obvious and over complicating things but I can't think of an easy way to just grant access to certain folders below that shared folder without removing the "everyone" permission from the top level which I'm reluctant to do as it will open a can of worms.

Any advice gladly received!

Thanks

Adam
