Modify this registry key:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters]

"Hidden"="1"

I'd setup VLANs so you can scale later.

Yes, VLAN's exist for this purpose. You must have a good quality MANAGED switch to setup VLAN's though. In essence, you assign each port on the switch to a VLAN and ports on one VLAN cannot see the other. The problem then is allowing them to share the Internet and a printer, right? Unless you can do Inter-VLAN routing on your router, are familiar with access-lists and subnetting, then that could be a problem... :-)
