[Samba] File/Directory permissions

I'd like to ask for help on some Netware to Linux TRANSITION issues.  Under 
Novell Netware, AUTHORIZED users can see ONLY the folders/directories they 
are allowed to see, whether or not they created them or not.  I'm at a loss 
as to how to implement this under Linux+Samba-2.2.8a.

I don't want the (ordinary) users to see all the directories that are under 
the /DATA directory.  Yes, with my current setup they CAN'T enter the 
directories or view their contents if they're not given permission, but 
they shouldn't even see the directory names in the first place so they 
won't bother TRYING to ENTER and then end up getting frustrated by the 
"ACCESS DENIED" responses.  How do I go about this?

I hope that making individual Samba SHAREs for each allowed folder is NOT 
the ONLY solution, because I have too many of those folders to fit the 
ENGLISH ALPHABET (driver letters).

Thanks in advance.
