Limiting ldap user on its own home directory


Hi all,

I am playing to implement an LDAP server, and after more/less struggling it works, I can add users and log as some of them.
Let say I added users X, Y, Z and automatically after logging in some of them is created home directory for them. My question is how limit user let say X to " see " only its own home directory (/home/X) --what and where to lock.
System is debian ( as usually ) ETCH.

Any suggestion is welcome.

Thank you in advance.

well this doens't essentially have anything to do with ldap, it's just a user which happens to have come from a non-local location, so it's just a standard user jail, e.g. http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_chroot_login
