How do I set up a minimum required quantity in each category?

I have a client who needs me to set up the Magento cart so that a customer has to purchase a minimum of five items from one product category and four from another. There are only two product categories. There is also a minimum order total of $30.00.

What is the best way to set this up? Can I use Catalog Price Rules or Shopping Cart Price Rules to do this somehow? I’ve tried but there’s no action that seems to relate to displaying a message or some other way of informing the customer that they need to meet the minimum order requirements.

Any help from more experienced Magento users will be gratefully received.
