Implementing Shares

I am using RHL 5.2 and Samba 2.0.2. I have the SAMBA acting as the PDC
in the network where most of the clients are Win95. Earlier we had a
Novell Netware Network and I decided to shift over to Linux/Samba. I am
having trouble implementing certain shares. The exact problem is
described below:

I want ONLY 'nhs' and 'vhs' to have read only access to
'/usr/iso9001/edp' directory. Nobody else should be able to view this
share. How do I implement this? In the smb.conf file I have the
following parameters declared for this share -

   comment = ISO files for the EDP department
   path = /usr/iso9001/edp
   valid users = nhs, vhs
   public = no
   read only = yes

This works fine when 'nhs' or 'vhs' logs in. However, when 'abc' logs
in, he is able to see the share in the Network Neighborhood even though
he cannot access it. How do I make shares for particular sets of users
visible only to them and nobody else?
