read only user in linux

Hi Guys,
I want to create read only user in RHEL5, In my Environment they not maintained file permissions properly, i cant use file permission restriction.

Actually i done some steps do this.
I removed all PATH variables for particular user.
then i set PATH variable only for /usr/local/bin, then i copied some commands like less, ls, more etc..

its working for me, but when i typed the history -c command then history getting cleared.

but i want to capture that read only user history.

Is it possible,
Thanks in Advance.

I think your only option would be to drop them into a chroot jail when they log in
