Group permission

Hello all!
Ive been searching, googling and manpaging (yeaj, newly invented word... ??)
Since Im posting here I obviously didnt find or understood enough to solve my issue.
I want to create a couple of new users that wont be able to access anything else than say "/new/" = /new/user, /new/files etc (yes its for an ftp) not / itself like a "normal" user that can view a lot. Would I have to chown, chmod the group/users manually for every directory else than /new/ or is there an easier way?

Cheers, Klod

You can just setup and use chroot for the particular users/group to their home directory.
