Setup of CHROOT (jail) not working (RHEL 6.1)

I've trying to get chroot jail working on my RHEL 6.1 server but have had no success and I can't seem to find any good reference on the web. Does anyone have any experience with setting this up, or has some kind of documented procedure to config a working instance? I'm simply trying to limit 3 users to one specific directory. Thanks

not sure what do you need to do with Chroot users, but here are some examples:
- perfect server centos 5.2 under section 20 Install Jailkit
- ssh jails

- deb chroot
- ssh chroot
- openssh chroot
- Secure chroot() remote file access via SFTP and SSH
