Help in setting up a Chroot jail in PCLOS2007


I have PCLOS2007 running up and fine, however, as SSH / SFTP were included in the installation package I could not compile them myself ( with the -chroot option) and am thus left with a non-chroot jailed environment when I login from a non-root account. I would like to get the jail set in place and have read the much recommened :

http://www.fuschlberger.net/programs...p-chroot-jail/

I am not sure if this would be viable in my case ? I really want to avoid using pre-written scripts as this defeats the object of the exercise i.e learn how to construct chroot jails via command line.
What would be the best way of going about this ? Any generous advice would be most appreciated.

Thanks again !

Uncle.

Search LQ for threads about chrooting or check out the LQ FAQ: Security references, post #4 "Chroot, chrooting, jailing, etc" and read a few. Select one that looks basic enough and try building a chroot just for testing how to chroot a local user. The steps you take and the errors you'll encounter will help you understand what is necessary (dependencies, configuration) for a chroot to work. *Then* try to chroot SSH. Alternatively you could use any prefab jail building script but then you'll have to a) trust the writer, b) read shell script or Perl to understand what gets moved where and c) there'll be no explanation.
