is there a way to hide folders from others. so that other users do see them?

The only way to "hide" files/folders is to have a . in front of the name (i.e.
.directory). This will hide the directory/file from normal ls-BUT will not hide
from ls -a no matter the permissions.

    how about making the directory the files sit in not browsable to other users
?  for example, if your files are in ~foo/bar, simply 'chmod 700 ~foo/bar'
