Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm setting up vsftp on Ubuntu Natty Narwhal & have configured chroot to jail basic user accounts. However I'd like to create a 'power user' account that can browse the user folders in /home but not go any higher within the system.
What I've done so far is I've created a default user account with 'adduser' then added the account to 'chroot_list'. But I don't want it to be able to browse the entire system, just within /home. Is there a 'best practice' method?
You are suggesting lock down perms on each folder in the root dir [bin, boot, dev etc]? That sounds good! But how? [sorry I'm a complete 'noob' at this stage]
At the moment, an account is either jailed & can only see their own home folder, or 'free' & can access everything. I'd like to set up something in between.
I see there is the option to run 'Bastille' but it appears to be recommended for more advanced users.
