EITHER, give him 2 login accounts, 1 for web folder editing, and 1 for gaming (probably the better idea), OR... Well, honestly that's gonna be the easiest way for you to do that.

There are other ways, but that'd be the easiest without giving him access to / (you can also think about moving /hdb1/hdb1/ftp/Home to something in the sub dir of /var; like maybe /var/www/ftp and giving user3 access to /var/www, and then simply denying access to the other 2 if that makes any sense).

Cool

As for the .kde folders and things of that nature (such as bash_profile) these things wouldn't exist in a non-normal user home. SO if you edit the /etc/passwd file to show these users home as something that is not a typical user home (such as /var/www) then these files won't exist and you won't have to worry about how to hide them.

Cool

This is the page I get when I search on sftp, could you provide a link to the one you are referring to? thanks. If you are referring to a client vs a server, this seems to be more of a server question.

Cool
