Yeah it's basically an issue of myself not having enough control over the machines this is being done on to alter anything. I think making a new group that only those 2 machines are part of and then restricting access to the new group should do the trick.

That is correct and so far thats the only way to accomplish the task that I know of.

I havn't had much time to experiment with the dual ownership yet but I think that may be another way to make it work. Maybe I'll do that today.

No luck with dual ownership, I believe that creating seperate user accounts for private sharing is the only way. And the way to restrict access to those new user accounts is to use passwords that only the admin and the special shared user knows about.
