FTP access restrictions


Hello,
I have a working FTP server running vsftpd on CentOS 5.
I need to grant access to several different users, each one having its own home directory for their files.
No problem configuring this. Each user lands inside its own home directory after logging in.
My question is:
Is there any way to prevent those users from moving out of their own directories?
As it is now, they can browse pretty much any directory on my server...
Even when they can't modify any file, I'd like to have them restricted to their own folder and sub folders if possible.
Any suggestions?

The term you're looking for is "chroot". Now check the VSFTPD docs and example configs and see if you can spot the word ;-p
