Is it possible to have a category of products viewable by only a certain group or groups of customers?

I am trying to setup a “distributor” section of my site where my products are sold in bulk at a discount, but I don’t want it to be viewable by the public.  Is this possible?

I do realize I could create a new “website” specifically for the distributors and maintain it under the same magento admin panel, but I’d rather not have to go thru all the hassle of setting that up if I don’t have to?
Thanks in Advance,
-Chris

To remove a block you need to know its name. A sample from the built-in Poll module:

<customer_account_index>
        <
reference name="right">
            <
action method="unsetChild"><name>right.poll</name></action>
        </
reference>
    </
customer_account_index>

I have this extension installed. What file do I edit… I want to only restrict the “dropship” category for all groups except wholesale.
