Custom Roll/Custom Post Type - Can't select categories (1 post)

    I've got a WP site with a directory. I created a custom post type for the directory entries, and used the Members plugin to create a custom user group that can only access/create directory entries, and nothing else. I successfully created meta capabilities for the custom post type by following this post by the plugin's author: http://justintadlock.com/archives/2010/07/10/meta-capabilities-for-custom-post-types And while people can add their directory entry, they can't assign categories to their post. I found that in order to select categories, the custom user roll has to have edit_posts checked, which gives them access to the blog posts--which I don't want. How can I enable them to assign categories without giving them access to blog posts?
