    Try Parental Controls, but I'm not sure that it can do that. I'm sure there's some third party software out there.

    Do a right click "get info" then look at the bottom the info pannel where there are some check boxes for "permission". You can make a file accessable to everyone, only one person or a "group". You have to work within this framework.

    Groups are the most confusing to use. play with the others first then come back here and ask about groups.

    File access controls have been built into UNIX for over 25 years now. You don't need any third party software.
