Jailed FTP Suse Linux


I have Suse Linux on a machine (8.0 i think, not sure off the top of my head).

I am using Ftpd as the FTP server , i want to be able to restrict or "jail" the user to their home directory on the machine so the cant "browse" the machine .

I am unsure of how to do this, and couldnt find anything on the net, so pointers would be good.

I know about Pro-ftp, but isnt there a way of doing this without installing pro-ftp?
