If you have publisher you can do this with ease. You assign the users to a document and this will set NTFS permissions when the document is distributed. Now if you don't have publisher you can manually setup the NTFS permission on the files, but I find the easy way is to put the QVS in DMS mode and assign users to the document under the Authorization tab under User Documents.
