I think there is no option for this but you can do it through permissions.

You can set the permissions up in the categories to members and up. This way guest can only see the login box.

what did i just suggest for this yesterday???? um??
Oh i suggested to another member asking the same question to create a hidden group,put the members you wish to have access to what ever forums they are,then just set the permissions for that group to have access.

thats about all you can do.I have seen the feature you are asking about on paid forums but forumotion do not offer this feature at this time.
