I need to have 2 networks off my system. 1 for use by close friends for internet usage occasionaly, the other just for my own use due to the secure information on my computer. I feel that I owe my clients a more secure environment even though I trust the select group of people that occasionally use my network when they are visiting from out of town. Becouse of the usage, I do not want the networks bridged in any way.

You cannot have 2 different networks setup on one gateway, for this you would need to have 2 different services and 2 different gateways. However depending on what Operating System you are using you can turn off file/print sharing and then your friends joining your network will not be able to see your computer at all or have the permissions to see any files. Please let me know if you need more information.
