Question Illumination problem

OK folks here is my problem:
Let’s suppose that we have a simple scene: a plane, a cube and a sphere.
Now if I put a directional light in scene I want this:
- cube to be illuminated and cast shadow
- sphere to no drop shadow and to not be illuminated.
This is possible? If yes please tell me how?
(I know that in 3D Studio Max at the light properties I have the possibility to enable or disable these properties.)
I’m waiting for solutions,
Arthur.

while we're at it, does anyone know how to make objects reflective? I've tried messing with reflection things in the attributes window, but none seem to reflect anything even when I render the scene. Is it possible to make mirrors?

select sphere, choose window>attributes editor, click render stats, and your back to the same place. There should be a box like "decieve light" or something. Unmark that back. This is the only place it would be in Maya, so just look down the list of items.

If you mean Max's light exlusion list, that can be found in maya by choosing Window -> Relationship editors -> Light Linking -> Light/Object-Centric.
