Restricted access


Here is a simple query but it is disturbing me a lot ....I'm using RH 2.1 Advanced Server . I want to create a user and assign him/her (say PQ ) access to a particular directory . ( say /abc ) This part is pretty easy .I know it and already done it too but real thing is that ,
I dont want that user PQ to go to any other directory or access any other files other than the files within the /abc folder . Ulitmately what I want is that a complete restricted access to that user so that PQ should do everything inside the directory /abc and nothing else ....anywhere .
Does that challenge you enough ?? Plz let me know if you need any more information . Thanx in advance .
