Protecting a multi-user server, per-user limits

I'm looking for a way to limit

-memory usage (mb/user)
-cpu usage
-processes (amount and no same process multiply)
-connections (amount of connections (to specific host))
-bandwidth (kbps/user and even owerall for regular users)
-disk usage
-available commands

for every other users than me/root.

(Debian Lenny)
