If I recall correctly, they only need "*X" (execute) data authority access 
to the folders (not even objects in the folders) above the ones they need 
access to. They do not need *R read access. I'm not sure about the 
symbolic link, try it and see.

Personally, I put all the HTML directories outside of the Domino data 
directory, under a /www folder (not a symbolic link). Domino has no 
trouble accessing them there. Don't forget to assign directory rights 
within Domino as well if necessary.
