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.

what i'm trying to do is limit access to all the files/folders on my box except one directory.
for instance, i can connect to the server and i setup the home directory to the location i ONLY want someone connecting to see.
i have assigned an ID to a group and assigned the ssh../share to that group
but, when i connectect to it i can browse all the way up to root and everything else.
is there anyway I can say xyz group or at least xyz user has access to only a certain path? this can be done on windows, but i can't seem to figure out a way in linux to deny only one group access... i use chmod g+/-whatever and that eleiminate/grants for everyone, not a single group.
also, whatever 'user' or 'group' access i assign doesn't make a difference when connecting to the ssh server...all that matters for seeing folders/files is the 'others' access....strange to me.
i looked at chgrp, chmod, chown and don't see how to fix this.
