Under OS 9's Multiple Users settings, is there any way to give a "limited" user access to a particular folder and ALL FILES inside it other than by adding each item individually? There's a particular program I want the user to be able to use, but even if I allow access to the application, there are thousands of data files that need to be accessed for it to work properly, and thus I encounter errors for every file the user doesn't have specific permissions for. For my purposes, there's no way the files or the application folder can be moved. I know that this would be much easier under OS X, and that there are more robust commercial utilities for managing this sort of thing, but unfortunately those options aren't currently available to me.
