Lock user in their home dir


Hi,
I would like to be able to give users access to the shell. Is there any way I can lock them in their home dir to prevent them from viewing the rest of the files on the system

Thanks,
Marley

Yeah, the concept is called "chrooting". Search LQ for "chroot" and/or read the 1st thread in the security forum (post 4).
