Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm running Fedora Core 4, VSFTPD 2.0.3, and PAM 0.79. I've configured the VIRTUAL USERS using the EXAMPLE. The virtual user is khopsic and when it logs in, the local user is cadmin and it is chrooted to /cadmin. I've verified the connections are using the cadmin account via a simple ps.
The setup works fine. I can touch files, create directories, etc login and access them just fine. But this is going to be an FTP server with terrabytes of data that these virtual users will all have download access to. So I created all my mount points within /cadmin, i.e. /cadmin/data01, /cadmin/data02, etc.
When I create the mount points, I can see them via FTP. But as soon as I mount the filesystem, the directories are no longer visible via ftp. I can get to them from a shell prompt, but not ftp.
How can I configure all of the mountpoints to be accessed by the virtual users via the cadmin local user? My guess is it's something with how the filesystem is being mounted, but I can't for the life of me figure out exactly what it is.
/dev/hda5 is the volume used for /cdead/data01. Could there be something with how the filesystem was created? I think I may be getting a little closer on this one. Any other help will be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!
