users and stuff,

Hi, during my installation of sarge, debian, I of course made a root account by default. I also set up an account which was oblied me to do which should have "normal user" rights. However, when I login using that account, and I go for example /var/www/, I can see all files and change them. How do I downgrade my "normal user" account, to one that is really "normal user" ?
