Created user in Webmin - how to lock that user in specified directory?


I've created a user in webmin and set the user's home directory to /home/mysite.com/username.

Is there an easy way to lock this user in the home directory?

I'm using centos 5.2 & webmin 1.43



Edit: found a solution.. vsftp works great!
