Is there a way to create different views on a list for certain users or
groups? For example, if there is a column on a list that only certain
users should be able to see, can it configured in SP or SP Designer so
only those users see that column?

My environment is SPS3...no moss.

Not really. Views are either public or private - public is everyone,
private is a single user. Even if you could do this, it won't actually
keep users  from seeing a particular column  as all they need to do is
create a new view containing that column.

Here's what I did to sort of mimic that functionality:

1. create  new view pages, just as web part pages, with the list  view
configured to display it your certain way on each page. (I created mine
in designer, and put them in the same folder location as all the other
regular views  for that list)
2. Create a new custom  list, with a title and a URL field, and make
each link in the list as a link to each of your new views you created.
(Don't create it as a links list). Also, create a field called
"active", as a Choice field, with Yes and No being the options, with Yes
as the default.
3. Edit the permissions of each of these custom list items, so that
each item is only given permissions to who will need to be able to see
the view
4. Put a "I

I was just going to say:

4. Put a list  view web part on some appropriate page on your site, of that list
of links, and users  will automatically only see the ones they have access to.
